New submission from Terry J. Reedy <tjreedy at udel.edu>:

and then a section "Converting to Bytes" and a later reference to

So perhaps the warning is obsolete and should be removed.
Also, the revision history should have at least one more entry for the
3.0 updates, which certainly were entered since 2005
