Better question is, why do you need ext4 on /boot?
If all the rest of your partitions are ext4, why would you want to load
additional FS module(s) (ext2 or ext3+jbd) just for one filesystem?

Doesn't the kernel now include those drivers, as opposed to having
them as modules?

$ grep '\(JBD\|EXT3\)' /boot/config-2.6.27.7-134.fc10.x86_64 CONFIG_EXT3_FS=y
CONFIG_EXT3_FS_XATTR=y
CONFIG_EXT3_FS_POSIX_ACL=y
CONFIG_EXT3_FS_SECURITY=y
CONFIG_JBD=y
# CONFIG_JBD_DEBUG is not set
CONFIG_JBD2=m
CONFIG_JBD2_DEBUG=y

And it will likely continue to be built in and used, as more and more solid state drives appear (journaling is a bad idea for solid state).
