I partly agree except that there's yet another difference: Emacs's
describe-key will give you some information about the click you just did,
not about the place you clicked.  I.e. if you left-click on the mode-line it
won't tell you what the mode-line is/does and what a right-click would
have done.
The "usual" What's This thingy would be more akin to showing the
(key-binding [mode-line]).
