I would actually prefer to see something stricter than data=ordered. Something that gives me the guarantee that the state after a crash corresponds to some logical state of the file system before the crash.
You always have the option to mount with "data=journal" - this is the safest and slowest mode with ext3.
And don't forget that RAID5 / RAID6 will break all barrier / journal semantics for all filesystems.
