There is no need for the CLI and GUI to be consistent with respect to  
options ordering. For the CLI, option order is irrelevant; options  
can be typed in any order.

For the GUI option order is very important because the user must  
access the options only in the order presented by the GUI. Thus we  
need to make sure the options order in the GUI section is the most  
logical and useable for the GUI. This section has no impact at all on  
the CLI.
