I keep hearing about galvanic corrosion, but all of my worst fastener experiences have been with steel on steel! Except for the front left bolt on my driver's seat!
I can only assume you've never worked in the marine/boating repair industry, which makes me think you've probably never heard of an "OMC heat wrench" either...LOL (nickname for an Oxy/Acetylene torch used to remove corroded fasteners from aluminum with a bit of heat)

@ eq1 - BennyMaxwell's attachment may help to explain the difference between a fastener and it's base metal, and why it might have a different rating when the fastener role is reversed (last couple of paragraphs).

P.S. - I vote for zinc plated steel fasteners for my aluminum Insight.
