I suppose that depends on your definition.  It has only JUST become
supported on RHEL ...

My experience is that I normally do not have any issues with ext3 on EL5
or ext4 on EL6 ... problems being that I can not use the system because
the IO is too slow, for example.

Other people might want to pick and prod and get the top 5 or 6%
performance they can out of a machine ... I would rather use what is
supported unless there is a reason that I can not do it in production.

That is why it's your machine ... you get to do whatever you want ...
and keep all the pieces :D
