why not?

Social media sites rise and fall. MyBB 1.0 introduced a fixed list of profiles for social media sites, many of which are defunct or waning in popularity. If we continue after this fashion, we would need a new version of MyBB every time a new social media site starts to become popular or another site is no longer relevant.

Instead, core MyBB schema should follow a pattern similar to the Social Sites plugin. There is a table with a row per social site. The columns in the table are generic enough (profile_url, like_url, share_url, etc) to use for all social media sites.
