You do not need centosplus to get the xfs support. xfs can be used by
installing the kernel module kmod-xfs and xfsprogs, both of which are
available from the extras repo.  However, the kernel of the installer
is not built with the xfs support which is why you cannot install the
OS into the xfs filesystem.
