Beats me.

I might want that, indeed, but what I wrote above is not directly
related, it's just that if ediff uses symbols `ediff-A' and `ediff-B',
I might like to be able to have a single entry that covers both (and
covers the ediff-ancestor one as well).  That would naturally extend to
a more general form of classification of buffers (e.g. `ediff' for all
things related to ediff... I'd probably also like to be able to use
a major-mode name as a classification).
