Yes, I was merely suggesting we should fix the inconsistency.  A new
feature was installed in HEAD that makes arguments from the arglist be
displayed in another color in the docstring: VAR wasn't highlighted when
VALUE and SYMBOL were.  It might be confusing to less experienced users.

I already sent a patch to that effect to emacs-devel.
