I don't.  It is pretty "content free" when compared with our current
default motd.

The information in the current motd file is useful and provides hints
towards stuff that may be interesting both to a new admin who just
installed FreeBSD and a new user who just happened to log into a FreeBSD

More importantly, the default /etc/motd is just a sample motd file,
which you are free to edit locally :)
