Because if you're already subscribed to one game and you get that perk and you've also got an account on the other game... the potential of having two games where these points could be used means people will go through their stipend(s) faster than with just one game. Therefore, they'll have to either buy more points if there's more they want to buy, or play more (i.e. grind more) in STO to obtain dilithium and buy more Cryptic Points off the exchange thus depleting faster the amount of CP's other people have.
To balance this, Cryptic will probably need to introduce a system equivalent to the DL/CP Exchange into CO and then both games could offer a unified C-Store and we will be able to enjoy unified stipends.
Not sure it'll ever happen, but I don't expect this to happen before NWO launches anyway.
