Comment(by nacin):

 I think it wa part of the conversion of one category per post to any
 number. Themes using the_category() would suddenly be expecting exactly
 one category when that might not be the case. My history is fuzzy as it
 was before my time, alas.

 I think most of the core team has gone on record somewhere saying that
 Uncategorized should die and painful death. No one is sure how best to do
 that though.

 I've thought about use cases for default terms for custom taxonomies, and
 whether abstracting out the default category to all taxonomies will in
 turn make it easier to turn off. Seems a bit backwards, though.
