Agreed, and if they are the same that would be good to explain too.

In general I think DESCR should do a better job of curation/advice, and

(A recent example is that I read DESCR for bonnie and bonnie++ and was
left unsure as to whether bonnie++ should be expected to produce the
same results as bonnie for the simple test.)
