Its important to me that people keep using FreeBSD.  Numbers are 
important.  To that end I'm happy for developers to keep working hardest 
on the parts of FreeBSD they find most rewarding.  Something's got to 
give and you can't stop it by creating more beaurocracy and red tape.

Another thing I think is important is for new hardware to be perpetually 
sent to those who can implement drivers and create patches.  I don't 
feel the FreeBSD foundation is doing enough in that regard.  Not talking 
about big ticket items like server farms, just new motherboards every 
time a new CPU or chipset is released.
