Why isn't F2FS support in the Kernel?

Yes, I looked at that bug report and the somewhat terse response. I
thought I'd post here first before I went the bugzilla route.
Based upon the information I discovered tonight it seems a bit puzzling it
isn't included. Seriously, Ubuntu includes it and we don't?
Google is using it for the Nexus 9? The "experimental" rationale just
doesn't hold weight - especially since we are allowing for
BTRFS Raid5/6; which is made out to be toxic. If it's good enough for
Google and ahem: "Ubuntu" - it's beyond ridiculous we don't have it.
