R. David Murray added the comment:

OK, what do you propose as a documentation change?  The current doc is accurate, but incomplete.  New phrasing could include something about the two de-facto standards but that one can not be sure that filenames will be in one of those two encodings.  Issue 10614 addresses the fact that the zipfile module doesn't make it easy to specify the encoding of filenames when creating an archive, IIUC, which also still needs to be addressed in any documentation change.
