This sounds good in theory but at the current moment only about 80 to 90
percent of BSD is freely available.  If you want to build a system that
only boots up 80% of the way, then go for it.  The people at CSRG are
working towards a totally free system but they still have a ways to go.
I'm sure that if you contacted CSRG they would be more than willing to
accept your help in rewriting the remaining code.  I believe they have a
list of utility programs that need to be rewritten.
