This  comes  mainly  for  historical  reasons.  The  correct  term  is
"changeset", but other terms have been used in the past.

Alias are there mainly to avoid breaking the existing. 

When a command  name is considered to be unsuited,  a new command name
is created, and the previous becomes an alias. 

The old aliases shouldn't be documented, but it's not always the cases
since documentation is sometimes not up-to-date enough. 

Well, at least, that's my understanding,
