The title of your thread is misleading. doas(1) is now part of OpenBSD's base installation as of OpenBSD 5.8. doas(1) is not available as a package.

sudo is no longer available as a part of the base installation, but is available as a package.

As for the motivation for doas(1), see the following blogpost by its primary author:
