[scikit-learn] Why do DTs have a different fit protocol than NB and SVMs?

Hello All,

I hope this is the right way to ask a question about documentation.

In the doc for Decision Trees
<http://scikit-learn.org/stable/modules/tree.html#tree>, the fit statement
is assigned back to the classifier:

clf = clf.fit(X, Y)

Whereas, for Naive Bayes
 and Support Vector Machines
it's just:

clf.fit(X, Y)

I assumed this was a typo, but thought I should try and verify such before
proceeding under that assumption. I appreciate any feedback you can provide.

Thank You and Be Well,
