Why is sendmail in the core of FreeBSD?

Just been wondering about this. If you do a standard install of
FreeBSD it includes things such as a basic FTP daemon, all the
various utilities such as df, ls, etc. SSHD etc. I assum these are
all in FreeBSDs core, as developed in the same CVS repo. Having read
the mails on this list for several weeks it seems obvious that most
people regard Postfix or EXIM to be the best MTAs, so I'm wondering
why is sendmail the MTA that is integral to FreeBSD? Wouldn't it be
ace to have the default one be Postfix or something?
