Historically, Apple’s technological/commercial interests have been more aligned with the requirements of MacPorts’ user base, and even then, MacPorts has shipped things that Apple no longer supported because those tools were still required by MacPorts' users.
If someone wants to exercise their prerogative to install an unsigned kext, Apple has already added plenty of barriers. I don’t see what we have to gain by deleting the ports out from under them, too.
