Well, with a little thought, I'm sure you could make a meta-plugin that adds
an interface to explicitly trigger the uninstall procedure. It's either
calling a stored callback or include()ing the uninstall.php file.

I don't think your scenario is common enough to warrant including this in
Core. It increases the ease of use in your case, but for all the rest of the
WP users, it adds an unnecessary UI element.
