How come posting a comment requires pullrequest:write access?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: pullrequests Resource 1.0

According to this page (https://confluence.atlassian.com/bitbucket/oauth-on-bitbucket-cloud-238027431.html#OAuthonBitbucketCloud-Scopes), commenting on a pull request only requires the 'pullrequest' scope. However when I try to post to 'https://api.bitbucket.org/1.0/repositories/{accountname}/{repo_slug}/pullrequests/{pull_request_id}/comments' the x-accepted-oauth-scopes header is 'pullrequest:write'. What is the reasoning behind this?

Thanks!

Looks like the documentation claiming that only "pullrequest" is required, is wrong. Since posting comments to pull requests is a write operation, is requires "pullrequest:write".

Thanks for the answer!
