My take on this is that it would make it slightly harder to develop
kernel stuff in the tree.  I don't like that prospect, and I think
this would impose some hardship on third parties that are using
FreeBSD.  If it could be turned off, that would be ideal.  It ties the
userland and kernel together too tightly, imho.

For the average buildworld, it might not be bad, however.
