*terminal-io* or *standard-output*?

CLtL, page 382, refering to the output-stream argument for write and friends:

    "If it is t, the value of the variable *terminal-io* is used."

Page 386, referring to format:

    "If destination is t, the output is sent to the stream that is the value of the
    variable *standard-output*"

Is this asymmetry intentional, and if so, why?
