How about to allow direct standard-error output to a different buffer
in start-process as well?

This proposal has a disadvantage of being confusingly similar to what
call-process provides, except that there the cdr is a file name, not a
I see as an advantage: it follows similar syntaxis as `call-process', so
it's easier to remember.
The difference 'buffer' <--> 'file' makes clear in the doc strings.

What advantages do you see to adding this convenience feature, when
make-process already provides it?
Again, some people may be familiar with (buf-out . buf-err) idiom from
`call-process', and they may be reluctant to use functions using
keyword arguments.  Not my case, though.
