Exactly the same goes for Tuvok and Neelix - seperating them out again restores them to their previous natural state, nothing else. In fact it could be argued that letting the "merged" creature continue to exist, that would in effect have ended the life of two distinct individuals.
Those lives had already ended. Tuvok and Neelix were dead, and Tuvix was killed in order to create new copies of them.
