We'll have to agree to disagree.  It can cause yet more burden on the
kernel developers if lots of people start enabling and loading it and it
breaks.  And "now I can mount my ntfs partitions and just use that" is
quite and incentive for people to try.

As for regressions, it's in the kernel.  It can break anything if has a
bug and starts corrupting memory.  It has no place in FC-6 IMHO.  It
should be shaken out in rawhide first.
