The distinction is there for a reason--- annotated tags are meant
for the more "public" and "permanent" stuff, while you can do
lightweight tags for random short-term stuff.

An argument could be to change Git not to follow unannotated tags
with "git fetch" and "git push --follow-tags" by default, which goes
in the direction to make the distinction even clear.  But for a
change to make the distinction less useful, I would have to say it
is probably a bad idea.
