I think that's all fine, as long as we have enough people zapping themselves with btrfs in their homes. A problem that I frequently heard cited with mainframe OSs is that every customer buys the latest release the moment it comes out and then waits for six to twelve months before installing it since they know it is less stable than what they want.
This makes absolute sense from an individual customer's point of view, but is extremely counterproductive on a global scale since many bugs that matter in real life only get found in real-life conditions.
At this point I would like to thank everybody who is running the latest kernel or distro snapshots and writes bug reports about them.
 Me included, will gladly donate broken root fs image to btrfsck testing now that I copied all the readable data to a new partition.
