Sometimes the doc uses "better" names to improve clarity when the argument is not supposed to be called as keyword arg.
> Here can be not only string, but bytes or bytearray.
The same applies here. "string" is also used in the error message (int() can't convert non-string with explicit base). If bytes/bytearrays are accepted too it could be mentioned later in the prose.
Otherwise we could use x for both, but the distinction would be less clear.
