Of course. For example, "for" semantics mentions StopIteration. Of course it doesn't mean "whatever builtins.StopIteration currently refers to".

[And in a lot of places it would be possible to say that some builtin is implicit in the statement itself: e.g.

    while t:   is equivalent to   while bool(t):
    for a in b:     is equivalent to    for a in iter(b):

- of course, the docs _don't_ currently say so, so maybe this occurance too should just be deleted. But I still think there are lots of places where docs refer to builtins directly.]
