zfs isnt as flexible as btrfs IMO eg Cant remove physical extents and rebalance. btrfs is the default fs in suse. and apt-get automatically snapshots every upgrade and you can rollback or co-exist even version upgrades although it requires command line to do so. I doubt ZFS even comes close on that score. Pretty awesome.
I guess he is really trying to stiffen the moral of the more hard-line mandarins and provide some cover against their more moderate colleagues.

I guess hybridisation is just part of the on going BBC "multi-culti" message. The other day there was a program predicting olive skinned farmers on nuclear powered tractors in Scotland in 300 years. Is it just my biases or BBC's that I am noticing all the time. On another note, isnt it funny how an organisation supposedly wedded to diversity believes that its dominance in media is a Good Thing.
I always assumed that you can probably already be identified with 99% certainty from your browser characteristics and ip number so cookies are not required really anymore. they are just the sugar on the cake if you allow them.
the only safety I can think of is for your browser to automatically retrieve all links from whatever you browser to confuse the trackers
