Once upon a time Smart Data Center (SDC) was still closed source. Back then it made a lot of sense to segregate ppen open source SmartOS functionality from closed source SDC functionality.
The differences between the two can be seen in the differences between the [sample SmartOS build configuration|https://github.com/joyent/smartos-live/blob/master/sample.configure.smartos] and the [sample SDC platform build configuration|https://github.com/joyent/smartos-live/blob/master/sample.configure.sdc] and the git repositories they reference.

Some of the benefits of platform consolidation

# No need to duplicate code between the smartos-overlay and sdc-related repostories (e.g. \[[FWAPI-107|https://smartos.org/bugview/FWAPI-107]\])
# People who want to test bleeding edge SmartOS builds could simply use builds created by Joyent's Jenkins instance
# SmartOS builds get subjected to the CI tests (currently that is only true for SDC platform images)
