I'm curious, why not just let the GC clean up the fonts in all cases?

This should be possible, but probably requires a substantial rewrite
of font.c and type-specific font drivers (xfont.c, w32font.c, etc).

Initially font cleanup at GC was introduced as a workaround for some
flaws in current font management subsystem.  See

Wouldn't they then also stay cached across frame-create /

This should be possible too, but it's hard to say whether it's really
worth doing.  I just don't see a usage pattern where frames are created
and deleted often enough so any caching makes sense.
