What is the difference between FB’s "user_posts" and "user_status" permissions?

In Facebook API v2.3, “user_posts” sounds like a superset of “user_status”. Is that the case? Why would I ever need “user_status” if I already have “user_posts”?

user_status

Provides access to a person’s statuses. These are posts on Facebook which
don’t include links, videos or photos.

user_posts

Provides access to the posts on a person’s Timeline. Includes their
own posts, posts they are tagged in, and posts other people make on
their Timeline.
