- every home is a node on the net.
(- so is every device, particularly given IPv6 or mobility, but leave 
that aside for the moment.)
- every such node needs a certain set of common services between it 
and the rest of the big bad internet world. e.g. firewall, dhcp.

Is FreedomBox intended to be the new Home Server?

(Inevitably running on everything, since aspects of those services are 
needed by a wifi enabled PDA, for example, wherever it is at that moment.)
