I think in this case wp_loginout() would work better.


In general, themes _should_ rely on WordPress wherever possible—unless
there's a good reason not to. If there's a login form in a theme it
should be using wp_login_form—unless there's a good reason not to. And
so on.

I think adding "where login forms are present" to that point might
clear that up.
