In my humble opinion it's a bad decision.
In that case i'd rather patch sed's source like this:

        # Restore original BSD sed
        sed -E -i '' \
                -e '/           p = lbuf;/ a\
                \               EATSPACE();' \

I suppose FreeBSD shuld remain authenic and must not rush after Linux, as the
ones who like Linux will use Linux, not BSD. FreeBSD should not copy or be
'like' Linux because it will never be on par with it... Why not to import
coreutils in this case? FreeBSD has it's own benefits and should keep 'em.
Those who migrate from Linux seek for something else/something new and not
another linux with different name.
