Unhelpfully, the answer is: it depends.
Take the taxonomy API, for instance: most functions take two parameters: a
term id and a taxonomy, so you end up passing the taxonomy repeatedly:
echo get_term_link( get_term_by( 'slug', 'some-term', 'some-taxonomy' ),
It would be easier to use if there was a WP_Term class that contained a
get_link() method instead.
On the other hand, there are a lot of cases where a plain function will
work just fine.

It's arbitrary. I think the most important thing is to be consistent within
