I looked into importing this into xfsprogs, and from a quick look
it could be simplified a lot by using code from libxfs or maybe even
by merging it into xfs_db and using the infrastructure there.

But xfsprogs is licensed under GPLv2 and will stay that way as it shares
a lot of code with the kernel.  Are you willing to relicense the tool
under GPLv2 or later?
