It's customary for Python to accept "truthful" values (like non-empty strings) as True. I see no harm in that. Strict type-checking to boolean True in each and every place is not necessary.
Similarly, this isn't productive. ET may not know about all encodings underlying the system. The warning is clearly documented - it's up for the user to make sure it's valid.
resolution: -> wont fix
