--- Comment #4 from Myles C. Maxfield <mmaxfield at apple.com> ---
We intentionally chose to put it inside WebCore because putting it outside WebCore would make it very difficult to integrate with Apple's build system.

The idea is that we would stop bundling it (and delete the checked-in copy!) in the future when all of Apple's OSes that ToT WebKit runs on would support avif natively. So we thought that all the pain of integrating with Apple's build system wouldn't be worth it for just a few years.

How do you feel about putting a few years' deadline on the amount of time that third party sources are in multiple directories to keep track of?
