The two versions are basically the same with regards to the script, but there are a few extra commands related to external files of course. Nsisbi is basically a patch against official nsis.

Anders has mentioned in the past that they are open to taking it at some point, but it would need a reconfigure so that it doesn't break existing scripts (eg solid compression, nsisbi currently ignores that by default). There also needs to be a discussion about code design and organization to better suit integration into nsis.

I can see why it's appealing though, 4GB all-in-one installers, and a theoretical 8EB for both the external file and single source files (a 3GB file now adds properly without a size error in nsisbi ).
