#16214 closed Cleanup/optimization (fixed)

Simplify docs for 404 and 500 views

The current docs imply that from django.conf.urls.defaults import * is useful and recommended.

Actually it's not useful: Django will fallback to the default handler404 and handler500 even if they weren't imported in the root URLconf. And import * is generally not recommended.

Also, there some redundancy in this section and some missing information.

I tried to make these two paragraphs complete and consistent.

This cleanup also fixes #16079.
