I think it would be much easier if the Server Administration and SQL Development shared the same server instances.

They already do - for the DB connection part. But Administration profiles need more data, as WB also needs to connect to the shell of the machine (SSH) to be able to run start/stop commands or gather status data from the remote/server machine.
So when you create an Administration profile, you select an already stored "Database Connection" for the DB part (or create a new one, which is added to the DB connection pool), but supply additional information for the SSH connection.
