Actually, the OpenBSD's motto always was "Free, functional, secure" with
all three being equally promoted goals. The security focus is a label
that originated outside the project. So it really doesn't matter whether
the Goals page will state any main goal or not.
BTW, why do You think that there is any correlation between popularity
of FreeBSD and the lack of label?
