Question: Difference between the vector and the Nx1/1xN matrix

Hi all,

A  stupid question.

I noticed that there are some difference between the Vector and the Nx1/1xN Matrix, for example:

It confused me. Why Maple should distinguish the vector and the Nx1/1xN matrix? 

If it is due to the need of vector analysis, I refered to VectorCalculus of Maple Help and it seems that Maple used the additional package and command to handle the question about vector analysis, for example:

I'd appreciate any help on this topic. Thank a lot.
