FreeBSD 12.0 is almost out the door, and the chance to make such changes 
there is long gone.  FreeBSD 12.1 or 13.0 would be where mount_smbfs 
could be removed, and now is actually a pretty good point at which to 
propose deprecating SMBv1 support for those versions.

Traditionally, that starts by sending an e-mail to freebsd-arch@... -- 
if you'ld like to be credited for the suggestion, please by all means do 
propose removing mount_smbfs there.  Of course, it will need a src 
committer to actually do the deed, but that's not likely to be a major
