Thanks for pointing this out. So if currently, creating a 10 gigabyte sparse file does not subtract 10 gigs from your quota nor from the free space report, giving the possibility that writing to the middle of an existing file can run out of space, then making a reflink to a 10 gig file should be treated the same way. There is precedent.
