Let me answer from the position of a mere user. It's not clear to me why 
and when users should switch to BTRFS or xfs or else, nor am I not 
interested in using anything which would potentially endanger existing 
installations (So far, reports I am reading from openSUSE users don't 
necessarily sound convincing).

In other words, you'd have to do a lot of marketing and convincing work 
to persuade users to use BTRFS/xfs etc.
