I can't speak for the Tom, but there are legitimate use cases for this.

For example, currently FR does not have limit for a particular virtual
server, port, or purpose (i.e. auth vs acct); everything uses the same
server thread pool. There can be cases where acct packets flood the
server and use up all available server threads, so that all further
packets (including auth packets, which should need less resource
compared to acct) is rejected. In this case it might be desirable to
have separate instance for auth and acct.
