As I already wrote here, it is not the technical question, but licensing politics question... Technically - no problem at all, but the decision about presence of this feature will be made by Otoy leaders.
Initially this client-server architecture was choosen to workaround the GPL issues, but as you've already understood - this architecture opens a huge
amount of capabilities... It lets even "in one click" switch from rendering on your local machine to super-fast cloud-rendering (e.g. for some urgent paid projects), back and forth, absolutely transparently, having absolutely the same plugin workflow... If this service will be granted for Blender users of course (again, it will be decided by Otoy leaders)...
So, at the time - I can't tell you what for decision will be made about it. But anyway - thanks to this architecture GPL issues are solved and you at least are able to get the Octane-Blender integration at all.
