But what prevents to make it stack independent? And why it wouldn't be possible to still implement it in a generic way?

There's on-going work for using the `netif` interface as the OS entry point of an interface, instead of using `gnrc_netif`. We are already able to use e.g LWM2M with LWIP through #16563 and it will become more important to have these "generic" API (not GNRC, but rather OS entry points) when other stacks fully support `netif_xxx` (there's ongoing work for OpenThread).

It's true that it's not possible to write apps fully stack independent yet unfortunately, but removing `gcoap` and `sock` dependencies to GNRC will definitely help to move forward on this direction.
