Richard if you remember originally styledText supported a few things that htmlText didn't and people complained so they upgraded htmlText so I think the original plan was to introduce a way to work with the new field features and that may have become somewhat redundant after the update to htmlText. I think it also mirrors more closely the data structures used in the engine and therefore be a bit quicker to get and set.
