Because it is not convenient to type

$$..$$ <backspace> just to get $$..$$.  You _start_ the display math
with $$, and you are going to end it in that way, and there is not
enough time between $ and $ to realize that AUCTeX fudges the closing
$ by itself.

And just typing $$ is _very_ fast since the key is just repeated.

In short: I can't believe that anybody finds the current behavior
actually helpful, and I can't remember anything but complaints about

I am ready to be convinced otherwise.
