I think Eric is overinterpreting the spec, there. While that particular
sentence requires that the empty format string will be equivalent to a
plain str() operation for builtin types, it is only a recommendation for
other types. For enums, I believe they should be formatted like their base
types (so !s and !r will show the enum name, anything without coercion will
show the value) .
