Why don't you?  This package has been very popular for a long time and
at least I haven't seen anyone complain about it not being in core.
Whatever gets included seem to freeze in time and becomes very hard to
make non-breaking changes, and their writers probably get frustrated
from that more easily and stop developing it.  There's ever more lines of
code and more packages, I don't think this direction is sustainable and
I hope you will reconsider this approach of adding everything to core
at some point.
