Well, of course, if you don't mind getting and error :) I expect
people would write either:

(if (boundp 'x)
     (run-hooks 'x)
   ; error or whatever


 (and (boundp 'x)
      (run-hooks 'x))

or, nowadays:

 (when (bound-and-true-p 'x)
    (run-hooks 'x))

which seem clearer for that specific purpose.

But for the case at hand, I don't see the difference either...

That's what puzzles me.  I don't understand why someone would add (and
term-setup-hook (run-hooks 'term-setup-hook)) instead of the simpler
alternative. But someone did, and I suppose he had a good reason...

That's all idle thinking, of course.
