What is the functional difference between tcp.segments and tcp.reassembled.data?

They both provide the reassembled data, and I think this looks like a
duplicate field.
Or do I miss something here?

The reason I ask is because I was thinking about this when
implementing reassembled.length, but found the existing field
(hf_fragments) sufficient for all practical use.  And yes, I know this
question is a bit late :)
