If one was deleted and the other didn't delete due to some failure, you would end up with an unpaired item floating around.  Also, since terms are shared across taxonomies, you could end up with a term name that doesn't correctly represent the item it's linked to, or changing the name of an item causing another taxonomy to have its term with an invalid name.

Interesting.  Thanks for explaining.  

This seems like a really important functionality to add, at least via plugins if not in core, now that we have custom post types, and it's very much inline with the type of things I work on.  I'd be happy to collaborate on it if you ever have interest.
