Probably they would abandon it for the same reasons as Reiser. Lack of maintinence.

Or those of Microsoft abandoning WinFS: poor performance, with little hope of improvement after years of trying.

Don't get me wrong, by all accounts Btrfs is awesome. But, anything can look great in the design phase.
