My original question came from considering a large file spread across multiple chunks, so that loss of any of these chunks loses part of the file. So any fixed probability of chunk loss adds up (approximately, anyway). On the freelist, I agree with you, and it does seem that you can be more aggressive about replicating superblocks to reduce the probability of superblock loss (but thereby slowing superblock updates).
Idle question, but I couldn't resist asking. ;-)
