Mounting UFS drives - is this a unix holy war?

I've got both FreeBSD and kubuntu machines running at the moment and
occasionally I've needed to mount a HDD from one machine on the other.
I know they use different partition schemes. so why is ther no obvious
mount type for them (fdisk is quite happy with all the official available
formats - er... except when I go to see exactly where to give an example,
I can't find it... *sheesh*)
I know FreeBSD has a mount_ext2fs (not sure why it does not have ext3fs)
but linux does not seem to have a mount_ufs equivalent. is this right?
OK, so here is what I want to know...
whats with linux and BSD not recognising each others disk formats? How
does one get around this seemingly (presumably) shortsighted injunction?
ideally I want to set up 1 machine with 3 disks... 1 with root mount
points and shared swap and one each for /usr for FreeBSD and for kubuntu
