but wouldn´t it be better to integrate it with the existing MESH Workbench , or vice versa ?
Obviously it would be nice to include such tools to the base FreeCAD code, the question is who is going to do it? And who will maintain it? If some developer adds code to the base FreeCAD system, but then disappears, that code may become obsolete and present errors in the future. Such is the state of the Ship, Plot, Robot, etc., workbenches. They were added to the standard FreeCAD code a long time ago, but it seems nobody has touched that code in years. So, in order to add more core functionality, somebody needs to be responsible. For example, FEM, Path, Arch, Part, TechDraw are seemingly monitored constantly by their developers and by various users.
Otherwise it's better to keep such extensions as an external workbench.
