Questions is, why? When has it ever been detrimental to widen your skillset?
Besides "(enough)" is simply no good. Especially when you're attempting to put BtrFS at the same level as ZFS.
There's a world of difference between mainstreaming some patches and a filesystem being suitable for mission critical work.

I've used SunOS, Solaris, FreeBSD, OpenBSD.

The overhead of maintaining several different systems is just not worth it. Actually, I think we're moving to even less systems. With anything which is currently not yet virtual to one virtualisation platform.

Enough in our case might mean btrfs as the backend filesystem with Ceph which replicates the data on several systems which should mean a whole lot less risk.
