Enlighten us, O great Lord, why is this? What is
wrong with using a triac with an inductive load?

You really don't know?
Attach a couple of hand-held electrodes across the capacitor/solenoid in
this buzzer circuit powered with a 9 Volt battery.

that the only load is the relay coil.
Measure the voltage across the relay coil by grasping the electrodes. Hint:
It's not 9 volts.
