Wouldn't it be a good idea for the FreeBSD community to look at that? DragonFlyBSD is a fork of FreeBSD, and still shares/sync a bit of code with FreeBSD, so I guess, a port of that KMS code, would be "relatively" easy.

Short answer is: no, not really.  The DFBSD work is interesting, but incomplete.  A much more complete set of patches is being circulated and integrated into FreeBSD by kib at .
