After Effects vs. Photoshop "Add" Blending mode.

I did a brief search before I posted this but didn't see anything on the forums about this question.

After Effects has an Add blending mode, photoshop does not. Why is that?

In Photoshop, it's called Linear Dodge (Add).

See John Nack's blog post (and the comments) for some more detail on linear dodge.

Okay, so I checked that out, and it all sounds solid. However, why would After Effects then include both Add and Linear Dodge instead of like how photoshop cs5 handles it? (i.e. "Linear Dodge (Add)")

My co-workers and I were just trying to get to the bottom of it for the principle of it. No other real reason than that.
