[docs] [issue22001] containers "same" does not always mean "__eq__".

Jim Jewett added the comment:

Ah... "be the same object or compare equal" sounds much better.

I don't want "same" to sound like an informal  wording for equal,  because
getting rid of the confusion over NaN and similar objects is the whole
point of the revision.  On the other hand, I don't want the language spec
to imply that a more careful custom container is non-conforming.
