Thanks, Neil Brown, for being a voice of reason.
I have disks and sticks that only ever get exchanged between linux stations and they're formated as NTFS because it's the only sane RW file system that I can easily convince to ignore access rights. If I could, I'd even format them in a way that doesn't even record gid and the rights octets giving me smaller inodes. Yet everytime I or someone else brings this use case up on lkml the data safety ghouls emerge with their fundamental concerns. It's highly frustrating.
