Teradata Database provides this method because it is in the SQL/MM Spatial standard, where it is defined to implement transform functionality that allows importing the ST_Geometry type to the server.

For best performance, use a constructor method instead of ST_WKTToSQL to construct an instance of ST_Geometry.
