I am in favour of doing this. Same with cpio. I'd prefer to see GNU tar
and cpio in ports (if they are not already there). If the functionality of a
GNU long option is useful, we should find an option letter that isn't used,
or use the -W namespace.

Another similar move would be to make /usr/bin/compress act as gzip, gunzip,
etc. by using zlib - OpenBSD have done this, but it is temporarily disabled.

Having two tar's, two cpio's, two awk's, gzip and zlib in the base system
is bloat.
