The patch looks good to me, but I'm not sure if it's a good idea to use _sre.SRE_*. I think these are implementation details and even if they should be mentioned somewhere, they "clutter" the doc IMHO.

> 2. I believe it is the policy that the 3.x docs 'start fresh' with 3.0.

Yes, they should be removed.

> 3. [...] In any case, removing the default value while changing 'group=0' to '[group]' seems wrong.

If it's possible to specify a default value the [] should be avoided.
