It is interesting to know why diodes inside receiver ICs do not
completely eliminate the need for external terminators.
Perhaps such internal diodes can reduce signal amplitude via
clamping action, but without sufficient energy absorption. Therefore,
internal diodes fall short of serving as termination.
