It's not exactly hard to understand. Take my situation, for instance. I have three accounts. My primary account was first made on my 1000 and is what I typically use for PS3/PSP gaming and where the vast majority of my downloads reside.
But I also have a Euro account so I can patch and buy DLC for my Euro PS3 imports, so I could buy several Euro exclusive PSP releases for my Go, and so I could download Euro demos (They occasionally get a nice demo way before we do and occasionally, they're the one ones that get a demo for a specific game).
Then when I bought my PSP3000 several years ago, I wanted to play my free Echochrome download that came with it. I couldn't recall my original account info and since I hadn't ever brought any PSP downloads up to then, I took the lazy route and just made a new account thinking the only purpose it would likely ever have was just to play a single game. And thanks to Sony, that account now has two more games on it as of a few months ago. This was before the Go was released, before the Mini program was started, and before the Vita was in the pipeline where I became interested for various reasons, like PS3 controller support on the Go, to actually start buying PSP downloads rather than sticking with UMD's exclusively.
So I now have one account with most of my PSP downloads, a Euro account with three games, and an alternate US account with three games.
Not being able to have all three active on the same Vita memory card (And from the sounds of it, not even on the same system short of resetting everything) like I can do on my PS3, is disappointing. It's not a big deal, I suppose (It's only 6 games, three of which I could just rebuy on my main account if I just had to have them on my Vita at the same time as the rest of my games), but it's still disappointing none the less.
