One possibility might be that the first API also returns "synthesized"
clipboard formats. For instance, if you put CF_UNICODETEXT format data
on the clipboard, Windows itself from that synthesizes when needed
also the CF_TEXT ("ANSI", i.e. current system codepage) format, and
advertises also that. See
