I noticed that

System.Diagnostics.Debug class is static: public static class Debug

whereas,

System.Diagnostics.Trace is not: public sealed class Trace

Both classes contain only static methods.

My understanding is that these classes have similar roles but are used within different environments, depending on the symbols defined.

So is there a reason for why one would be static and the other would not, when both of them only contain static methods?
