Yes. There are a couple of ideas here -- one (as yet unimplemented) is that you could use the SSD as a caching frontend to larger, slower media behind it. Another is that you could use exclusively the SSD to store metadata items; btrfs doesn't care how far away from data you put its metadata, or even if they end up on the same device.
