How about:

1.  It's a well-defined task (isn't it)?, and therefore a natural
    candidate for a module in a modular server.
2.  Because it's a lot of extra complexity, it should remain optional.
3.  Separating it out will help maintainability.  Or rather, failing
    to do so will tend to be a maintenance nightmare.
4.  If we get around to refactoring mod_proxy to provide separate
    forward and reverse proxy modules, a worker management module
    will be a useful optional extra for both to have.
