ReplaceAll in Element[] Q

Dear Group,

Could anybody help me in understanding this 
obviously strange behaviour

In[22]:=$Version

Out[22]="4.0 for Linux (April 21, 1999)"

In[23]:=ReplaceAll[Element[Alternatives[a, b], Reals], Alternatives -> List]

Out[23]=(a | b) \[Element] Reals

Why not replaced ??? Compare:

In[24]:=ReplaceAll[El[Alternatives[a, b], Reals], Alternatives -> List]

Out[24]=El[{a, b}, Reals]
 As expected
