What about things like XFS delays allocation and ordering of meta-data

XFS may choose not to write data to the disk when it is received, so
loss of data during crash is more likely.
Creation and deletion of directory entries is a much slower metadata
operation than other file systems
I've heard good things about xfs, but no personal experience. However, I
would STRONGLY DISCOURAGE you from running reiserfs for this. I've seen,
and dealt with, resierfs corrupting filesystems and it's a nightmare. I do
not have a good opinion of resierfs after real world experience with it.
