Not only this, but there's (probably) lots of small/janitorial 
contributions that do not need the full power of phabricator or any 
sophisticated code review.

Not accepting github PRs and forcing everyone to go through an uncommon 
tool (however formidable), is quite likely to turn those contributions 
away IMHO.
