[New-bugs-announce] [issue34336] Don't promote possibility to omit Optional on optional/defaulted arguments

New submission from Ville Skyttä <ville.skytta at iki.fi>:
The documentation of typing.Optional seems to promote practices for not specifying Optional that are recommended against in PEP 484:
https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0484/#union-types -- end of chapter recommends against inferring Optional.
https://docs.python.org/3.8/library/typing.html#typing.Optional -- second paragraph promotes the possibility of leaving out Optional.
I'm not sure how to improve the typing.Optional doc wording, perhaps it would be better to just remove the second paragraph altogether.
