Before I let it near anything even remotely important I'd want the standard suite of tools to allow me to remove and rename subvolumes (available via a third-party btrfs tool), and apply block quotas to subvolumes (because if I can't stop a large download using up all my disk space and stopping me from logging in because /tmp isn't segregated from /var, I've got a system which is worthless for multiuser purposes).

This is a planned feature. I plan to use it for this as well as openvz/lxc type virtualization.
This should be a simple addition to the btrfs-progs tools. In the meantime, you can snapshot the subvolume with the new name and delete the old subvolume location with the current tools.
You should post this to the btrfs mailing list.
