Personally I'm not principally against including Resynthesizer, but for
it to happen it is important that the initial set of patches looks good.
So I suggest you start with getting together patches that adds
Resynthesizer to GIMP which can then be evaluated.
I certainly see it as a favour for users to include a popular plug-in in
the default install.
