Spindles spin (ie. bottom brackets); An Axle remains stationary and the hub and bearings rotate around it. Re: the automotive terms, I think the industry differentiates because an axle connects the two wheels on the rear of the vehicle (like the term axis), while they use the term spindles for what supports one wheel up front.
