Can you make a guess at what it is?  Is it the fact that you can have NULL
parameters for algorithms or optionally non-NULL parameters?  Changing this
could be tricky because there are all sorts of inconsistencies both in
standards and implementations, the standard practice has been to skip the
parameters field because if you don't, things break.
