I'm not necessarily against the idea, though I'm not yet convinced
there's a big need...

org-agenda-skip-if accepts notscheduled and notdeadline conditions.
Passing them both to a single org-agenda-skip-if wouldn't do what you
want because org-agenda-skip-if combines its conditions with `or'.
However, you could combine two separate org-agenda-skip-if calls:

     '(and (org-agenda-skip-if nil '(notscheduled))
           (org-agenda-skip-if nil '(notdeadline))))
