Serhiy Storchaka added the comment:
5 is not valid index of character, but it is valid index of substring.
IMHO documenting explicitly miscellaneous particular cases which are not exceptions of general rules just adds a noise. This makes the documentation larger and decrease the chance that it will be read.
