Proportioning and/or distribution valve?

What's the difference between these two?
Yes, one of them is a distribution and proportioning valve, while the other one is a proportioning valve.

But what does the first one actually do that the second one doesn't? And if it does something neccessary, why isn't everybody using it when designing a new brake system? I know the first one also have a brake light function (I thought is was a warning light function) but is that all?

Probably stupid questions, but I couldn't read it out of the product descriptions at Summit.
