There really isn't much to look at.  The new API is more ergonomic, but
forces contributory behavior by checking if the output is a low-order
point, and spits out an error.  RFC 7748 has this check as a MAY.  The
noise spec prefers not having the check (which is what the deprecated
API does).

have anything to do with this,  Sorry it's been a while since I've
thought about this.  I seem to vaguely recall years ago, some explicit
use case that involved sending the neutral element, but I might just be
