We consider that an instance dispatch is anything that is not
dispatched to a device or one of its children... what do you find odd

How about this?:
"Originally, the Vulkan specs stated that VkGetDeviceProcaAddr could be
used to retrieve function pointers to any core Vulkan command, yet it
would also state that returned function pointers could only be
dispatched to VkDevice or one of its children, so in practice this made
it incorrect to use any pointers to instance-level commands that were
retrived with this function, which was a source of confusion. Later,
the spec was updated to make VkGetDeviceProcAddr return NULL function
pointers for any instance-level commands".
