That only works as long as btrfs is the next shiny thing, or as long as no one decides the options Fedora used to create btrfs volumes with are crap and it’s a good idea to recreate them with new better options. (btrfs may offer migration to new volume options like ext4 did in the past, I still would not want anaconda to touch my existing user data volumes, especially when doing emergency reinstalls because the kernel, systemd, glibc or any other core component crapped itself).
