I am thinking of better embedded device support, primarily. I might just
give it a go if I get bored one day, and see if it works.

I was thinking that NetBSD has a similar heritage to FreeBSD (and would
support similar software protocols etc.,), so it would not be as big a
jump, as to Linux & iptables (NetBSD has better embedded device support,
and runs on more platforms). 

I am presuming NetBSD and FreeBSD share a more common heritage, either
philosophically speaking or literally.

Ah, but there is still probably a whole other FreeBSD - NetBSD holy war
also :)

This thread has all the makings of a holy-war :)

There have been many threads in the past about this subject...or at
least whether the OS platform should be changed. Linux vs. FreeBSD vs.
OpenBSD vs. NetBSD. While I am far from a developer and even farther
from a *nix propellar-head, I am pretty sure the reasons fro not
changing were mostly to do with PF vs. IPF vs. IPCHAIN's. With a
little effort (searching the archives) I am sure you will find the
