That is counter to the BSD philosophy, escpecially OpenBSD. The design is a small, stable, well-working base system that third-party applications and programmes are added to. It also allows only having the applications the user wants to have.

When I used Debian I only installed the based system, then the few things I wanted. Similar to OpenBSD. If I did not want a bundle of crap I do not use when I used Linux, why would I want it with BSD? (I hate DMs, let alone DEs.) The last thing I want is the BSDs following the path of Linux.
