I think the more interesting question would be, why can it only be built in
:-) .

The drm/bridge series from Ajay Kumar [0] made it into 4.0-rc that enables
drm-bridges to be regular platform/i2c devices, see [1] for example.

So I think any new bridge driver should use this approach and can thus also be
build as module.
