I do not think this would be a very good move, and better if we discuss
it with core qgis team. Processing has a number of serious limitations
(one for all: vectors should be imported and exported for every module,
which slows down things very considerably). In the long term it might be
possible to drop it, but probably not for now.
All the best.
