I bet the existing wording is just left over from the python2 docs.

I think cp437 should still be mentioned explicitly.  And mentioning "setting the utf-8 flag" would probably make the explanation clearer, though I'm not sure.

Tecnically speaking, I think zipfile supports utf8, not unicode.  Or it supports unicode via utf-8.
