CREATE SCHEMA also lets you specify lots of other stuff, like tables and view and constraints, as I recall. Check the documentation for correct details - too much for me to put here by memory, so no need to waste time correcting this.
There are also options about data dictionary and other things. There might even be an option not to create the journal stuff and the local copy of the catalog files. Again, details escape me - I usually just create a library, then add stuff to it.

both create a journal and a receiver and all the same views over the
system catalog objects. <<SNIP>>
More telling, to distinguish each and a possible error\deficiency in
the documentation, would be the difference in effects between each of:
CREATE COLLECTION THING1 CREATE TABLE LURCH (ITT CHARACTER)
CREATE SCHEMA THING2 CREATE TABLE LURCH (ITT CHARACTER)
CREATE COLLECTION ADDAMS_FAMILY1 FOR ADDAMS1
CREATE SCHEMA ADDAMS_FAMILY2 FOR ADDAMS2
