As I recall, the devs switched to having identical PvP & PvE set bonuses after 3.0 because of the balance issues with unequal set bonuses before. For instance, PvE Snipers used to get the 2 piece PvE + 2 piece PvP set bonus for the extra tick of damage on Orbital Strike pre nerf. Now, instead of having to balance 2 sets for each class the devs only have to focus on one. So in that way the change was a good thing.

But I agree, the things that are needed for PvP are vastly different from the things needed for PvE, so having a single set bonus for both will always give the short end of the stick to one or the other.
