Because it's a different change. One that's orthogonal to this set,
which is designed simply to ensure the documentation matches reality.
The author decided on this (less than ideal [in our humble opinion])
nomenclature from the function's inception back in 2013. Maybe there
are good reasons for it to be this way. Either way, it might require
a dialogue. For this set I'd rather stick to the script.
That said, I genuinely don't mind drafting a patch to fix this. If I
am to do so, it would also be as part as a subsequent effort.
You or me - your call. Happy either way.
