I agree with your opinion, it's a bit too early. An experienced user can 
deal with the idiosyncrasies of btrfs and it's great when you learn it, 
but pushing it as the default seems too adventurous.

I want to add to the list of problems the performance degradation over 
time in database-like files (journal, vm images, firefox and other 
sqlite db). I have experienced minutes of delay consulting the journal 
in heavily fragmented journal files.
