[docs] [issue10976] json.loads() raises TypeError on bytes object

Nick Coghlan added the comment:

json.bytes would also work for me. It wouldn't need to replicate the full
main module API, just combine the text transform with UTF-8 encoding and
decoding (as well as autodetected UTF-16 and UTF-32 decoding) for the main
4 functions (dump[s], load[s]).

If people want UTF-16 and UTF-32 *en*coding (which seem to be rarely used
in combination with JSON), then they can invoke the text transform version
directly, and then do a separate encoding step.
