The flip side is the more important question. Why should we ask
developers to support a version of the OS that doesn't have:
* bhyve, drm2, rasbpi, nvme, several overhauled drivers and carp.
* mpr, mrsas, pms, autofs, other overhauled drivers.
I recommend folks reading this thread should examine those links.
As for things removed from base, my understanding is:
* we have limited people to fix/regression test all the security problems
in base/ software. A few notorious candidates have been factored out
* there is an overall drive to move to an entirely GPL-free base system.
Perhaps this is not important to you but there are others to whome this
I have some other thoughts on this but I am being called away to deal with
some other crisis ATM.
