Naming for tree views, _view_list or _view_tree

I’m looking at the code that describes tree views in xml and I see that sometimes tree views are name whatever_view_tree and others times whatever_view_list.
Does the different naming imply different concepts? Is there a convention on when to use one naming suffix or the other?

Normally we try to use _tree suffix when it is used for tree which children and _list when it is used as flat list. But this convention came later and it is not well respected (and maybe we should just always use _tree).
