I think "pline" is the official AutoCAD command name? I think there is a default alias set up for that in Rhino. It was not really a goal to be a 100% identical AutoCAD clone like some programs shoot for (especially for stuff like only 1 global UCS which was really painful in AutoCAD with multi viewport modeling) - it was more to just generally feel friendly and really easy to pick up for AutoCAD users.

There are other things that get in the way of that in Rhino though too, especially needing to hold down shift and control a lot. A lot of the time people will have to glance down at the keyboard when using those modifier keys along with the mouse.
