My guess: The keystone CLI was deprecated first because the author of the openstack CLI is also a (the?) main developer of Keystone. Besides, the keystone CLI still uses the term "tenant" everywhere and requires a major facelift.

Every service is supposed to deprecate thier respective clients and CLI for openstack servics should migrate to openstack client. Only keystone migrated thier CLI to openstack client. All the other services are way behind in thier support for openstack client. Ultimate goal is to deprecate nova/glance/heat/.. cli and move all their functionality to openstack cli client. As an enduser, you need to have only one cli client installed in your system
