Yes, that's exactly right.

But then I see some SOHO APs, when configured in WPA2-PSK mode, allowing the
user to choose between TKIP or AES for the encryption type.  That's OK with
the spec, but it's confusing to the average WLAN user who mentally
associates TKIP with WPA and not with AES.

oopss sorry for that :->

wpa and wpa2 enterprise are both using ieee 802.1x/eap for authentication 
while for personal mode are both using PSK...

either enterprise or personal mode... wpa is using tkip/mic while wpa2 is 
using aes-ccmp for encryption...
