The difference is that one (GeoFence) is a plugin that is added to
GeoServer  and so makes sense to be part of the GeoServer project and the
other is a project that uses the GeoServer API and as such should be a
standalone project in the same way as GeoManager
geoserver-rest-client <https://github.com/marcjansen/geoserver-rest-client>,
gsconfig <https://github.com/boundlessgeo/gsconfig> and probably dozens of
other clients. You might as well say that QGis belongs in side geoserver
because it can handle WMS and WFS requests.

I see no reason at all to start adding client code to the GeoServer code
