There is nothing to change here.  sprintf with an array as first argument
is not useful, but scalar context is useful and, more importantly,
likely to have code relying on it.  There's nothing more to say in the
documentation, and we can't change the behaviour for backcompat reasons.
This ticket should be closed.
