Fusion drives in general aren't a good idea. If it were completely bug free it would have the same reliability as a completely bug free raid 0 config. .

Oh pardon, you are stating that the reliability is bad for an installation like the Fusion Drive, period. Not that the SW is prone to chaos when you yourself setup a Fusion Drive using the instructions in the linked article. I apologize!
