Steve, lemme try again.

For production (business/academic/???) users, people for whom a change in
filesystem is a flag day that costs $$, a choice to switch to a kernel that
is only provided by SGI is a tough one. I don't know how I'd justify such a
thing. The old question of support/maintainance/longevity is a real tough
one to wave away in that case.

What would you say to such a user in making the case to use an XFS kernel,
when technical arguments alone won't do?
