That sounds even scarier to corporate management; best not to phrase it
that way.

Corporations want someone they can point to and someone they can call
for full accountability.  They don't like democratically elected groups,
which they consider slightly communist, ironically.  They don't feel
comfortable with companies that can support a product but do not control
it, particularly if nobody else clearly controls it, either.

You'd have to be quite a superstar to sell FreeBSD for a 10,000-seat
rollout based on yourself and your services alone.  You'd have to be
immortal and immune to illness, too.  Corporations don't want to hear
that it all depends on just you.
