IMHO, for that to make sense, someone capable would have to volunteer to
maintain it on our side.  If we don't have such a volunteer, it makes
more sense to me to keep development external for now.

If we see a need to move development fully into core in the future, we
can always do that, but the reverse is harder.

(If we want to preserve history when making such a move at a later date,
we could just delete our existing copy of the file from emacs.git and
then merge the full git history, just as we did with eglot.el.)
