XGetWindowProperty() AnyPropertyType and XA_CARDINAL?

A atom is placed as a XA_CARDINAL type to the root window.
To get this atom XGetWindowProperty() is used.
AnyPropertyType fails and XA_CARDINAL succeeds in the req_type argument,
which is the 7th one, to XGetWindowProperty(). Is there a reason for this?
The XGetWindowProperty manual says both should succeed.
