It is easy for me as an outsider to see that this can be viewed from
the opposite angle:
"VirtualBox is just another virtualization solution for FreeBSD. We
are sorry that the VirtualBox team can't find any time to provide the
necessary documentation. Currently FreeBSD don't have any developers
with enough free time to figure things out from the documentation
available now. You see - it is simply a manpower problem."
I do hope I'm wrong, and that some FreeBSD developer will work on this.
