so you don't _really_ want the computer doing exactly what the programmer tells it to, you only want it to do so some of the time, not the rest of the time.
Sure. YMMV as I've already noted. Good filesystem for USB sticks must flush on close(2) call. Good general purpose filesystem must guarantee rename(2) atomicity in the face of system crash.
You can use whatever you want for your own system - it's you choice. But when question is about replacement of extX… it's other thing entirely. To recommend filesystem which likes to eat user's data is simply irresponsible.
