Yes, I see that.

OK, you have partially convinced me. For a simple local function, we
might not want to take two pools when that seems unnecessarily
verbose. If this function takes one pool, allocates its result in that
pool, and perhaps allocates a small amount of temporary data as well,
I accept your argument that we don't necessarily want to name the pool
'result_pool' because that could be confusing in places where its
implementation is storing scratch data. In cases like this I agree we
may want to use the name 'pool'. And in other cases there is
flexibility too. We don't enforce a rigid rule.
