It came to my attention that:

In the original PEP True and False are said to be singletons
https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0285/, but it's not in the Data Model

This came to my attention by code wanting to own the valid values in a
dict's key:

if settings[MY_KEY] is True:

If True and False are singletons in the spec (and not only in the CPython
implementation), it should be prominent and well known.
