Why time_control is different in ladder games?

Let’s look what API returns for them (https://online-go.com/api/v1/games/11519618 vs https://online-go.com/api/v1/games/11695893)

So in one instance “fischer” is “system”, and in another it’s called “time_control”. Why would anyone name it differently, this doesn’t make any sense?

Should I ping @anoek for this?

Two lines under system fischer is time_control fischer, it seems every element on the RHS is on the LHS, but fore some reason the LHS additionally has “system” “pauses_on_weekends” and “speed” elements that apparently the RHS does not require.

Still don’t get why would we need “system” there if we have perfectly valid “time_control”, but I found even curiouser thing:
