Netgear R7000 OpenWrt


I dont understand why the R7000 is supported by dd wrt, tomato and Express VPN firmware based on open wrt and open wrt does not support R7000 ( wifi not supported) ?

Some explanation:

The last link explains well.
But I wonder why the expressvpn firmware works very good with the R7000 and they did their firmware from open wrt source...

The tomato works with R7000 but not open wrt.
I ve read about the legal thing (dd wrt) but I guess tomato does not have the rights like dd wrt?
