R. David Murray <rdmurray at bitdance.com> added the comment:

No, you are right, there's nothing actually inaccurate.  It might be
good for it to say, about repr, that it prints the "minimum number of
digits necessary", which is what is different from the old behavior. 
But I agree that it doesn't *have* to change.
