I get the feeling that they're keeping the two belts for practical/sentimental reasons more than any long-term agenda (mainly because they don't seem to HAVE a long-term agenda) right now;

1) The current WWE belt is only about a year old and they don't want to commission a new design so soon
2) Triple H is an NWA fanboy and doesn't want to retire the gold belt
