Antoine Pitrou added the comment:

"Buffer protocol" is the right term. "Buffer object" doesn't mean anything in Python 3 and, furthermore, it might be mixed up with the Python 2 `buffer` type.

As for the error messages, they are generally very bad on this topic, so I would vote to change them :-)
