Imperatives of देना and लेना

I'm doing the reverse tree for Hindi, and I noticed that the imperatives used for देना and लेना are ले लो and दे दो, whereas I would expect just लो and दो. Is it because those are irregular verbs? Or because the verb stems are too short? Or is it more colloquial/idiomatic this way?
