Depend on what you define as "work with IMAP", Nextcloud does 
not come with IMAP server, but installing an IMAP server on the 
side of Nextcloud/Owncloud using the same storage probably not 
that difficult. Furthermore, Nextcloud can have IMAP as 
authentication backend, and also have extension that allow 
accessing IMAP from inside Nextcloud interface, make it easier 
to give impression of integration to users.

That said, if the code actually FOSS, then anybody who is 
willing can fork the last FOSS code and continue developing it, 
and we have many of those, like Illumos out of Open Solaris, 
LibreOffice out of OpenOffice, MariaDB out of MySQL, Bareos out 
of Bacula, etc.

Not true, Nextcloud can have PostgreSQL as database backend:
