Sure.  Except to reiterate that ZFS and btrfs are not ready for
mainstream use on Linux.  To recommend doing so to someone seeking
advice is irresponsible.

Beyond the issues already mentioned about using ZFS and btrfs not
being ready for production use (enterprise or otherwise), if not
having recovery tools for a btrfs is not already deterrent enough, I
would recommend reading http://lwn.net/Articles/393148/.
