I'm somehow reluctant to new debconf templates in a "late" stage of d-i development. Moreover, it's important to decide about the time such warning would be displayed. Maybe (if possible) when a user decides to choose "btrfs" as filesystem for one of the partitions? Not sure that partman allows that, too. Another option would be to turn partman-btrfs into an "optional" package by changing the priority of the partman-btrfs package. This way, btrfs wouldn't be shown as an option to users going the default way of installing Debian. People really wanting to use BTRFS would then have to pick partman-btrfs in a list of optional packages to install (only in expert mode).
