--throw-keyid and -R options

Is there any difference between the effects of following commands?

gpg -e -R alice -R bob file

gpg -e -r alice -r bob --throw-keyid file

And when I abbreviate --throw-keyid to --throw or --throw-keyi even, I
get the error:

gpg: Option "--throw-key" is ambiguous

There is nothing else that starts with the string "throw" so why?
