Strings as streams

Does anyone know whether the following point has been "clarified" at all?
say, in Guy's previous notes about clarifications and corrections?

CLtL p386 says that formatting to a fill-pointer'd string should add
characters "as if by use of VECTOR-PUSH-EXTEND"; but CLtL p331 says that
with-outuput-to-string will work "as if using VECTOR-PUSH-EXTEND if the
string is adjustable, and otherwise as if using VECTOR-PUSH".  

Possibly the description of FORMAT merely needs the additional wording?
