You could though.
nil is a variable that just evaluates to the symbol 'nil (eq 'nil nil)

the same goes for t.

I personally don't feel confused by a symbol, a string and a variable,
but because someone is going to say it, I'll do it:

Make a suggestion on how to improve the documentation. But beware: The
completely documentation uses the `foo' syntax for functions and
symbols.
