I think it's partly for the latter reason, and partly so that when you have
separate reservoirs, you can tell which system is leaking.
The BMW 2002 has an interesting variation, if I recall correctly. Clutch
and brakes share the same fluid, but the clutch hose is connected higher on the
side of the reservoir. If you've got a leak, you'll lose the clutch first
before the brakes are affected. An early warning system!
