Maybe it should go to python-committers or some other public ML, so that other devs can see and possibly fix the issue.

Indeed I was confusing the two.  I'm not actually even sure that the Unicode standard mandates these specific replacement characters (IIRC there's even a way to configure them), and I was under the impression that '?' was sometimes used during the decoding, but after a few tests it seems I was wrong.
