Basically, QGIS plugins are free to link to any libraries they want (as far as
there is no license problem). So no problem if you intend to create analysis
plugins for QGIS that are linked to the CGAL library.
In my opinion, the advantage of these 'native' plugins over GRASS plugins
would be that data does not need to be converted if it is not already in
GRASS format. The disadvantage of course is that they need to be done before
they can be used, while the GRASS plugin exists and provides a large number
of excellent analysis methods.
But there is in principal no reason why GRASS plugins and other analysis
plugins may exist at the same time.
