FUSE is originally from Linux, and its protocol is more or less
designed to work well with Linux VFS.
BSD VFS/VOP interface is too vnode-centric, and difficult to properly
implement per-open-file stuff required in many of the FUSE ops.
FreeBSD FUSE has (or had) similar issues as well.

If someone is actually wanting to work on it, sure.
It's just that users will currently encounter panic in most cases.
FUSE fs that properly work on DragonFly are some sort of virtual
filesystem or readonly filesystem where VOP_WRITE or VOP_PUTPAGES are
never called.
