The point is that, if Lelouch's death was to clear everyone make them all nice and squeaky with a new lease on life. Where is Schneizel's second chance? Why is he left enslaved for the rest of his life, when people like Nina, who wanted to kill the Japanese long before she met Schneizel, got off free.
Because Schneizel is "today". He never changes.
Cornelia more or less said it: In a world without conflict, he would have been the perfect king. No personal desires and no attachments, but highly intelligent and only having the "greater good" in mind.
In any other kind of world, however, that only makes him incredibly dangerous.
Lelouch knew that, and even if he had wanted to, there was no way he could have taken the risk.
Not to mention that, since Schneizel had no personal desires, he probably wouldn't have been able to make much use of a "second chance".
