While there may be some good reasons for not including reiserfs4, at least it seems like it's a very innovative approach to filesystems.
I don't know the reiser4fs filesystem, but one thing caught my attention in the article: In the Reiser view of the future, applications like relational database managers need not exist; such tasks will be handled in the filesystem itself. I seem to remember that the VMS filesystem (some 20 years ago) had "relational database-like" features: files can consist of strongly typed records and there is record-level locking.
