IMHO polkit authentication agents should be just as default as an X
server. We don't depend on xorg-server for graphical applications

GNOME includes one by default, KDE includes one by default.
xfce4-session should just depend on one.

As for providing it: makes no sense. gnome-shell could provide one, but
if you use xfce and have gnome-shell, you'll never get to use the polkit
agent in gnome-shell.
