Yeah, but the browsing context is the same. The browsing context terms
such as browsing context container, nested browsing context, etc.
represents a sequence of documents whereas for some scenarios you just
want to look at a document and not its browsing context whose active
document might be something else.

So e.g. if you have a browsing context that has two documents
associated with it. And the first of those documents has an nested
browsing context. And you want to make an assertion of sorts about
that nested browsing context's top-level browsing context, it may no
longer have a nested browsing context.
