Diff in opening binary stream in JSP & Servlet

A JSP page is compiled into a Servlet; therefore, it can do everything
that a Servlet can do.
If the above statement is TRUE, then why is an IllegalStateException
thrown when opening a Binary Stream output to the client from a JSP page
but NOT to a Servlet?
Choice 1,JSP pages can write a Binary Stream using its implicit out stream.
Choice 2,JSP has already opened the stream as a JspWriter.
Choice 3,JSP pages must flush their buffers before changing the stream type;
Servlets do not have this limitation.

The reason is choice 2. The signature of JspWriter class is public abstract class JspWriter extends, and the implicit variable out is an JspWriter. As the translated servlet opens an JspWriter it throws an IllegalStateException.
