Cannot enable what? Eglot is in ELPA. Have you tried it?

Please someone start working on this ASAP.  We sorely need that, just
look at the recent discussions on Reddit that underline these
deficiencies in Emacs.

None of these discussions say "oh, if only Eglot was in the core instead of GNU ELPA, that would solve my problems". I haven't seen a single opinion like that.

So maybe you could point out a specific issues or set of problems, and we could discus whether each particular one would be fixed by moving Eglot to the core, or simply improving Eglot, or by some other means.

Adding some integration in Emacs that wouldn't import Eglot but would increase its discoverability is also an option, and a worthy goal IMO.
