I don't deny it's a lot of work. But if they are rewriting Workbench anyway for OS4 it might have made sense to do it back then. After all, they have spend 20 years so I think it's not more work than the way they actually did it.

Most OS operate with a window server, window server process owns the windows and controls, application just 'rents' them. In this way one well tested and well written component can take the big responsibility away from apps developers. Why Workbench instead of Intuition though? Because workbench is single place that knows about all kinds of resources, files, icons, windows, processes, ports, devices, whilst intuition is only one subset of that.
