But it is possible I misunderstand the implications. :-)

I believe you did misunderstand.

IIRC, the OpenBFS under R5 option was a way to test/use Haiku's BFS
implemention under R5 before Haiku's was complete enough to use it.
OpenBFS was one of the first components of Haiku to hit Alpha/Beta
status, and therefore it needed to be tested in R5 as Haiku's kernel
wasn't even bootable at that point.

I think Axel is looking to drop the ability to compile and use OpenBFS
in R5 as it's mostly unnecessary now.
