I think it's because slackbuild only ship slackbuilds that makes it so good and it's so easy to customize and make packages that suits your needs

You are free to do what ever you want but i can't see how third party packages would be needed.
The good thing would be that the *.SlackBuild would be included in the docs dir.

How could anyone know how an properly compiled package that suits your needs or system would look like?
And is it needed? because some maintainers already have there own websites where they do have packages.
