The current documentation is not just imprecise, it is wrong. My English 
is so bad that I don't understand what is wrong with the proposed PR. To 
me, it adds correct information. Would be nice if you or other native 
English speaker suggest better wording. This is not a minor 
documentation change, this is a fix of a single official documentation 
about CPython bytecode.

I'm sorry for reminding about this issue. I thought you forgot about it. 
This issue was open for 3.5 and marked as "release blocker", but you 
have not mentioned it.
