term-setup-hook v tty-setup-hook v emacs-startup-hook

Trying to document the new tty-setup-hook, I found it confusing that
Emacs now has both term-setup-hook and tty-setup-hook, with similar
names and descriptions.

On inspection, term-setup-hook seems to serve no purpose.
It is run by startup.el immediately after emacs-startup-hook.
So anything that you might want to use term-setup-hook for,
you could just as well use emacs-startup-hook instead.

I think it would be less confusing if term-setup-hook were made
obsolete (and undocumented) in favour of emacs-startup-hook.

(tty-setup-hook is a bit different.)
