Well, because sooner or later, you'll delete a project that someone
didn't want deleted, and they'll be ticked off.  Maybe they'll open a
ticket and convince the infra. team to restore the data from a backup,
or maybe they'll just be ticked off and rant about how much Fedora
sucks for deleting this thing they didn't want deleted.

Again, I'm assuming the per-project maintenence cost is near zero (ie,
a little bit of disk space).  If not, then maybe I could see a case
for automatically deleting old projects.
