For as long as I've been involved with FreeBSD, the approach that
I've always heard applied was instead:

If you complain about it, it's your responsibility to fix it.

Maybe that's the disconnect. Maybe we need to go back to the
older style, which I have never personally encountered with regards
to FreeBSD.

However, that would have to be enforced by -core, and they'd have
to agree to live up that standard themselves.
