A interesting thought experiment, what would the results look like from 'rolling' a 7 and 5 sided dice together as oppose to using two d6's.

 

Answer;

One 2 and 12

Two 3's and 11's

Three each of 4 and 9

Four each of 5 through 8!

And only 35 total outcomes.

 

Of course this would have to be done with a computer rather than physical dice (unless your willing to re-roll a higher sided dice when a unused side comes up) and with work, a program could produce any probablity distribution desired but the middle flatting effect is interesting and maybe useful.

An interesting concept. It would obviously mean there being a less probability of rolling say a 1 using the  seven sided die compared to the 5 sided die (with the argument being converse), which could lessen a balanced play within a game.
