Here's what I think, for what it's worth...

In the past, it wasn't straightforward to host source repositories on one's own.  Since the CCL project was already handling the project hosting chores, I think it made sense to make part of the CCL repository available for user contributions.

These days, project hosting services are common: GitHub, Bitbucket, GitLab, and more.  That being so, I think that it's better for non-core CCL code to be in its own repository, owned by by its author.
