Please open an issue at bugs.python.org.  We did something similar in issue
#9650, [1] so I think this will be well received.  Python docstrings are in
plain text, but you need to consult PEP 436 (The Argument Clinic DSL) [2]
for details. The format() docstring is specified in Python/bltinmodule.c.
