Ah, the source of the confusion is here.
The Pencil, Brush, and Air Brush tools each do different things to
whatever Brushtip+Dynamics they happen to be used with.
I was referring to the usefulness of the Pencil tool as doing "something
different and sometimes very nice", compared to what the Brush tool does
given the same "Brushtip+Dynamics" combination. I wasn't limiting the

rather suspect you might be right, that for many use cases the Brush
tool is better for use as a "digital pencil".
