XFS is an add-on module that the CentOS developers added because people wanted 
it. The official filesystem of CentOS is the same one that upstream has in 
RHEL -- EXT3. To see if a filesystem is truly supported by a distro is to see 
if one can select it at install time. Everything else is added on for someone 
else's benefit.
