The VGA code uses code from SeaBIOS to implement some of the 16bit
infrastructure.  If the vga code was moved into a new repo, this code
would have to be copied.

It's possible to move it, but I don't think it's a high priority right
now.  The VGA bios is in many ways similar to the regular bios - so I
don't think it's a total mismatch to keep them together.
