Comment (by masquerade):

 The general pain and hassle that forcing WordPress itself to verify
 consistancy across all tables is more than I think is worth it to add.
 This is precisely what Foreign Keys are for, but unfortunately without
 forcing table types and higher MySQL versions we can't take advantage of
 this, and writing all the code to enforce this within WordPress is just
 too great a hassle.

 Plus, you don't need to even drop the tables to reinstall, a truncate will
 do, its just deleting every row that isn't the same.
