I don't see a problem.

If the Feature owner cares enough to keep proposing it, then FESCo will keep
reviewing it.  Technical items change over time.  Perhaps the VirtualBox
module will make it into the upstream kernel and the Feature will be viable.
Or perhaps a future FESCo will revist kmods.

If the Feature owner doesn't care, then they can delete the page.  Either way,
I don't see what the problem is with having it sit in the FeaturePageIncomplete
category.
