I'm not saying it is not doable, if we have workspaces we can have
something simple as a REPL (as your snippet shows).

But it is not as prominent as a workspace. And of course it doesn't
come bundled in the core image :)

E.g. Think of the Javascript console in Chrome Developer Tools, where
the console can work as a Workspace, a Transcript and an Inspector all
in one.

Or, think of python or ruby's irb.
