Fred L. Drake, Jr. added the comment:
It's not at all obvious that the intention is to ensure such an argument should be treated only as a command external to the shell.
If an application really wants to ensure the command is not handled as a shell built-in, it should use shell=False.
Making this clear in the documentation is reasonable.
