History. process-file and start-process are derived from call-process
and start-file-process.

call-process allows only (REAL-BUFFER STDERR-FILE), and so does

start-process allows only BUFFER in its docstring (no separation between
stdout and stderr). So start-file-process did originally. Later, when
I've reimplemented it in Tramp using make-process, I wanted to support
the separate stderr buffer of make-process, and I have extended it,
therefore. However, this is not reflected in the docstring, and you
might be better served to follow the official API, and use make-process

Best regards, Michael.
