When You say it this way, it gives impression that the goal is not
supposed to be ever reached. Compare: "The GNU project works to create a
complete GNU operating system."


This is the most known feature of DragonFly outside the community. I
believe that it shouldn't be emphasized to avoid impression that
DragobFly's main target is the HAMMER development. That's exactly the
trap that led OpenBSD to the public image of difficult people concerned
only with security.
