He is proposing a prioritized plan in order to accomplish this goal and is looking for your comments and feedback.

Maybe for you FreeBSD is an OS to toy around with, but for some of us it runs mission critical applications for corporate environments.
With this in mind you would not like the idea that extra code for (for my purposes) useless xbox might instabilize the entire thing. Every line of code is a potential bug.
The time spent on porting is not the time-waste i'm worried about. its time thats wasted during bug-hunts and such things which are the cullprit here.
It doesn't stop with just merging the code. You need support for it and what not. Those resources could IMO be better spent. And lets be honest. FreeBSD's stability has not made much fame since the introduction of 5.x
