You have it reversed. According to the Standards (and it was a decision of
the C Standard to make it this way, there actually was previous usages of
the reverse convention such as "wt" you can find with MS-DOS compilers),
fopen is normally text ("w"), binary mode ("wb") is rare and even then
identical to text.
This does not change anything to your point, which still holds.
