I would think the license probably precludes it from inclusion.  If you
want to push for commital you might do well to research a bit about how
Lucent licenses their WinModem driver under Linux, then find out if the
patches at that site you listed are BSD licensed.  If your email
contains that info it probably has a better chance of getting attention.

If the license on the kernel module is incompatible with the base
system, you might be able to get the hooks to support it committed to
FreeBSD and get the kernel modules made installable as a port.
/usr/local/modules anyone?  =)
