> Maybe it is worth adding a warning to that section of the 2.7 docs about implicit imports in general and encode/decode in particular?

Ok to add a note to str.encode and str.decode methods to explain that
an import is needed the first time that an encoding is used.

I'm not ok for a warning, we should not discourage developers to use
these methods! They are not dangerous by themself.
