The FreeBSD Project is a volunteer effort.  It is currently supporting
4.11, 5.5, 6.1, preparing to release 6.2 and developing 7.x.  You
cannot demand that volunteers do anything - they work on FreeBSD because
they enjoy it.  If your business is relying on FreeBSD 4.11 and you
do not believe the _free_ support you have been getting is adequate,
you are always welcome to look through the list at
http://www.freebsd.org/commercial/consult_bycat.html and find someone
to provide whatever level of support you want.
