FLOAD V/S MLAOD

Everyone says there are 5 phases in MLOAD and 2 phases in FLOAD
I am little bit puzzled
As FLOAD will also do the below steps
1. logon ,session ,logtable, UV table ET table creations as Preliminary phase in MLOAD
2. syntax checking and sending the SQL to the TD server as DML translation phase in MLOAD
3. cleaning the UV and ET tables as Cleanup phase in MLOAD
So what is the exact point in telling there are 2 phases in FLOAD

Re: FLOAD V/S MLAOD

Preparation/Cleanup in FastLoad is just a part of phase #1/#2, but no separate phase.
It's simply a naming convention, you could talk about 2/3/4/5/6 phases whatever :-)

In fact MLoad's aqcuisition phase is just like a FastLoad into the worktable.
