Is it possible that modern wireless card only supports WPA and
not WEP or this is a bug in the driver?

I see. I am sure anybody who doesn't know this will get confused and will
have the same question.
Isn't it better to have 2 separate flags in CAPS: for example WEP and WEPHW?
WEP would mean that WEP is supported and WEPHW would mean that it's supported
