because is a pain to maintain, and having different repository services makes you needing to thrust in different providers status, and then if you want to work offline you need to take a copy of each repository which are dispersed all around the world.
I just lost 3 hours of my life trying to figure out which version of OSProcessPlugin was the correct one, then looking for the correct repository, etc. 
This wouldn’t happened if all used plugins are maintained together. 

btw (advocating for the way I would like to have things) this wouldn’t even be necessary if all packages needed would be versioned along the platform sources, using filetree format… then having the clone of your desired version you would be sure to have also the correct VMMaker AND plugin versions… but I know this way of sorting things is too much to ask, so I would be happy if all packages are *at least* in the same place.
