You're right. Maybe the developers of PC-BSD and DesktopBSD will help to improve this situation.

I have a feeling that you'll find that most of the effort will be going into the integration of KDE 4.0 and BSD - KDE 3.x is coming to the end of its existance, and it makes little or no sense tying up resources adding features to 3.x when 4.x is going to be coming with in 6months, and will most likely hang around for another 2 2/1 years before another abi/api break.

With that being said, however, FreeBSD 7.x will provide an interesting backdrop to *NIX on the desktop; Xorg, FreeBSD 7.x, drivers being ported over like Intel 3945abg support, hopefully improved Nvidia support.

Edit: Kneed your paws with delight like a kitten; FreeBSD now has Intel firmware distribution rights! http://www.prweb.com/releases/2007/03/prweb509818.htm
