Confusion over editable property : TRUE/FALSE or YES/NO

In MS Dynamics NAV Editable and Enable fields properties represent different values in different places. 

As an example if you go to the property of the page and editable field it is set as <YES>
Plus this is a option property where you won't be able to assign a boolean value for the field and control the editability of the page using the particular boolean value. 

This is how it looks the Table Property

For a field in a page, Editable property is set as <TRUE> and you can set a boolean value to the property and control the field editability by controlling the boolean value. 
This is how it looks in the field property

 Is this something Microsoft did intentionally or is it a mistake?

Please provide your feedback with a comment.
