IIRC, the plan was that it will be ready by RHEL5.1, but additional
critical bugs were discovered, the fixes for which have, to my
knowledge, not made it into the distro yet.

This issue is that the rules for updating RHEL are that we can't put in
updates to GFS2 in RHEL 5.1 because GFS2 is a demo feature in 5.1 and we
don't want to potentially risk adding bugs by fixing unsupported
features. I know that it seems to have been a long time but, I hope,
understandably, we are cautious of risking other people's important data
on the filesystem until we are sure that we've sorted out all the issues
and have been through extensive testing.

I think you misunderstood - I fully suport the approach you are taking of ensuring that RHEL features are totally stable. Those that want to play with unstable features always have FC available. :)
