Ah, but decisions like "don't sync the superblock and metadata too often" are not block-level issues, and thus have nothing to do with the I/O scheduler. All filesystems must make their own decisions on where to put data and when to force it to disk - that's higher level stuff. The I/O schedulers discussed in this article, I believe, don't have a role to play there.
