The reason they exist is historical, and is just for flexibility.

Having two content types, even though identical in fields, provides more
flexibility in workflow. For example, one can be moderated by default,
and have comments on by default, the other can be not so.

In 5.0, you can define your own type, or delete story if you don't like it.
