There was a second historical reason: In old versions there was a
separate piece of code to control the TenTec Orion which was not
supported by hamlib at that time.

But as hamlib now also supports that rig the related code got dropped
around 5 years ago.

I am strongly in favor of that idea. Atm I see no reason to compile Tlf
without it. It would further simplify the codebase and make tests
