QGIS 2.99.0-149 modeler, algorithm input does not restrict to valid shape types

In QGIS 2.99.0 modeler there is a new input type called 'Feature Source', what does, what 'Vector Layer' did in previous versions ([[https://gis.stackexchange.com/questions/252373/qgis-2-99-0-149-modeler-inputs-feature-source-vs-vector-layer]]).
In previous versions QGIS modeler algorithm inputs did restrict the list of selectable input layers to valid shape types (e.g. a polygon input and a point input in 'Count points in polygon' algorithm). QGIS 2.99.0 lacks this behaviour at this point, so it would be possible to pass a point input layer to an algorithm where a polygon layer is expected (and vice versa, cp. attached screeshot).
Expose all layer type filters to both model feature source, vector
layer and multi layer inputs

So with exposing all layer type filters vector layer input (2.99.0-151), we can use either feature source or vector layer as algorithm input. Obviously they are treated the same, which can be confusing (cp. gis.se question referred to above), Why this distinction?
