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.
