The reason for that is there are multiple layers of encapsulation in the library.

block_cipher_type is the core algorithm, which is part of the lowest-level of the API. However, there is a block_cipher wrapper "block_cipher" that provides C++ semantics (iterators, ranges, specialised "crypto_buffers" and etc).
