Terry J. Reedy added the comment:

The 3.4 sequence section also has this: "Sequences of the same type also support comparisons. In particular, tuples and lists are compared lexicographically by comparing corresponding elements."  I agree that dicts should have a similar sentence or two. Neither the sequence or (frozen)set sections reference the language manual, so I will leave that out.
