Ber the clear reason was that you can attach different permissions to 
them, different taxonomy vocabularies, different publishing defaults, 
display of 'submitted by' information, enabling of comments, etc. These 
are all still utilized features and differentiators of actual usage 
patterns of story and page (with these usage patterns differring from 
website to website for good reasons). The possibilties can be better 
communicated, and better defaults can be made for the two types, but 
saying that there is no reason to have the two of them is false IMHO.
