Question about the Darwin Kernel

I know that the Darwin kernel is open-sourced, so is it possible to replace the OS X kernel with like an OpenDarwin kernel or something similar. I'd imagine that the benefits would be very large, and if I'm not just being ignorant to some huge limitation then I'd think that these two projects (OSx86 and OpenDarwin) would be destined to intertwine. Anyway sorry if I'm blatently wrong.

 

EDIT:

I just read that OpenDarwin died and now the other alternative is Mac OS Forge. Well in any case is this idea of using open kernel's possible? How about device drivers?
