As I read and understand it* a distribution could package it as a kernel module and include ZFS just fine.

There seems to be an effort to package it for Debian when you look at the package development server of Debian.

Debian who are very strict when it comes to licenses already includes a ZFS implementation in the form of Debian/kFreeBSD.

I agree about btrfs, if only because zfs can never be part of the standard kernel.
