Actually there isn't a real reason... when I started using GNU/Linux I read about
different filesystems and I choosed XFS because it was more efficient in reading/writing
data than ext3 (and others fs). I don't know if this is still true, some new fs versions
have been developed, but I can answer your question saying that if the partitioning
program allows the user to choose XFS, the user will expect that XFS can be chosen :-)
I don't know how difficult it can be to edit the debian-installer, but a message listing
which filesystems are supported can be useful (or, perhaps, removing from the list of
selectable fs those unsupported).
