Here is a direct answer to your question.

As others have pointed out, the OpenBSD team is relatively small compared to FreeBSD, and their focus is on security, standards, providing a development platform, cryptography, truly free licensing, etc., etc.. So, the members of the project have made a deliberate choice not to focus on including the latest and greatest technology, especially at the expense of their goals.

You may be better served switching to FreeBSD for those purposes, as it is likely you will not find satisfaction in OpenBSD - the folks involved in the project simply do not care as strongly as you.
That's nothing a couple o' pints wouldn't fix.
