I agree. pfsense could be run in a VM alongside other VMs, using another hypervisor, but I prefer to run it on bare metal for better I/O performance. Then instead of managing more hardware, some useful services could run on the same router in VMs like pihole on debian, and ubiquiti unifi controller for wifi management.

Of course, bhyve on pfsense can be manually setup and used, but without official support there would be difficulties upgrading and maintaining it.
