"I thought another reason was that you can't BOOT into a ZFS volume unless ZFS support was baked into the kernel, as it's the only thing running at boot time."

There is a world of difference between baking in support and compiling in ZFS itself. The first of these allows you to boot from a ZFS mount, the second allows you to do it faster.
