I haven't kept up to date with the resier4 debate (if much has changed with it) but from what I got at the time of it beginning, the reasons it was rejected were actually more to do with long term design than current implementation; the belief that chunks of his code would be better places in the VFS layer rather than in the filesystem itself, that way, other/future filesystems could use the same plugins and model. So the "long term design goals" argument doesn't really apply as much as it might seem.
(no that wasn't worded very well, but it should be clear what I mean ;-)
