Correcty syntax for CLI/CQL SH with DataStax on Windows – possible discrepancy?

I am using DataStax Cassandra Community Edition on Windows 8. I am following the documentation at – http://www.datastax.com/2012/01/getting-started-with-apache-cassandra-on-windows-the-easy-way

In Windows, there are two command line utilities 1. CLI and 2. CQL Shell. The syntax for both of them differ e.g. you can see from the help menu that, to create a keyspace, CLI => create keyspace, while on CQL Shell => CREATE_KEYSPACE

However, as per the documentation, the following line works well in CQL Shell while giving exception in the CLI utility.

create keyspace hr with replication={'class':'SimpleStrategy', 'replication_factor':1};

Is this a discrepancy? “create keyspace” style statement should work in CLI as given in its helps menu, but it works in CQL Shell where the syntax in the help menu is CREATE_KEYSPACE.
