Nope. Drupal and therefore its contributed modules uses the GPL
license which guarantees that I can do what ever with it including
hosting it else where.

Not if the rule violates the license.

Maybe. Or perhaps it would less favorless on the project if Drupal
decided not to host contributed modules at all. There is a learning
curve and there are suggested procedures with the contributed module
conventions. Enforcing them is a community effort and if you find a
module that doesn't align with the suggested procedures you can open an
issue with the project.
> It doesn't look scandalous.
Yes it does because what you propose violates the license.
