The inconsistency in definitions is reviewed more extensively in Okami's Child Perpetrators of Sexual Abuse Johnson classifies initiators of consensual sex play with other children under 9, who, she says, are "too young too realize [they are] being violated" as "perpetrators," even when there is no coercion or significant age discrepancy. Johnson labels several boys as "child perpetrators" at least partly on the basis of their "sexually provocative verbal behavior with other children" - i.
Okami points out that "virtually any childhood sexual activity may potentially be defined as sexual abuse according to the criteria outlined by these investigators. Most of the behaviors alluded to here under the rubric sexual rehearsal play--"exhibitionism," mutual masturbation, genital exploration, attempts at intercourse and actual intercourse--fall well within definitions of "perpetration behavior" proposed by writers such as Johnson, Cantwell, and Gil.
Clearly, it would be POV for us to decide what is the norm, and exclude all that fits it from this article As with most controversial topics, there are more than one POV, even in the scientific literature. When that happens, the Wikipedia way is to note the multiple POV's, without undue weight. That said, there is no question that there exist definitions of "child-on-child sexual abuse" that differentiate it from "sexual rehearsal play", and that it is recognized as a form of abuse, not "play", and that it can and does cause harm to some children sometimes in childhood and sometimes in adulthood.
The quote posted in bold by AnotherSolipsist , that sexual play is considered by some to be perpetrator behavior is a red herring. If a 9 year old kid coerces or forces a 4 year old into sexual behavior, that's not play, it's abuse.
The play behaviors may occur with some degree of coercion within small age differences and still be seen as non-abusive, but when the age or power differential exceeds some threshold, the abusive element becomes obvious. All of this needs to be sourced of course, but the point is there is no reason to obscure the topic of the article, sexual abuse of a child by another, by extended discussions and detailed referencing of normative child sex play.
That other topic can and should be addressed in child sexuality. Where there is an overlap or gray area, as to for example, how much power or age difference is needed before the acts are clearly termed abuse, that can be addressed here appropriately in context.
But non-abusive, non-coercive sexual rehearsal play between children of similar ages and power is off-topic for this article other than a short mention in passing to show contrast from the actions and effects of abuse.

I recently added a comment in the opening paragraph that stated that if a child was "playing doctor" for some sort of sexual gratification, then it could be deemed as child on child sexual abuse.

To create the motivation to change, some offenders need a variety of treatment and corrective interventions, and for others learning how to make the change in their own behavioral cycle of abuse is more effective. While drugs and alcohol are often involved in sexual assaults, drugs and alcohol do not cause sexual offenses to occur. Rather, drug and alcohol use may be a disinhibitor for the offender, while being under the influence may increase a potential victim's vulnerability.
Adult and child victims of sexual abuse are never to blame for the assault, regardless of their behavior. Because of the age difference, children are unable to legally consent to sexual acts.
They are often made to feel like willing participants, which further contributes to their shame and guilt. Similarly, being intoxicated does not mean the victim bears some blame for the attack.
Rapists are to blame for rape, not victims. Sexual assault victims may not say "no" or not fight back for a variety of reasons including fear and confusion.
