Again, that's the blanket problem.
And it's not about "features."

So from the Fedora Myths page, it's about the reality that Fedora Core
ships as a platform that does X, Y and Z.

Because ReiserFS and JFS don't support X, Y and/or Z, they are not
options -- and likely never will be until they do.  The lack of such
support is the "show stopper" for inclusion.

But then that's a problem for FS, because it _does_ do X, Y and Z -- EA
ACL/SELinux, Quotas, NFS, etc...  So there is another reason why it's
not included by default.  E.g., XFS has known issues with 4KiB stacks,
and some NFS support issues have been introduced in kernel 2.6 (that
didn't exist with SGI's kernel 2.4 implementations).

I can be very, very technically accurate, but not "over-assuming" at the
same time -- especially from the legal aspect of claiming things that
might be disputable.
