I'd love to, it's my FS of choice. But have you noticed this on reiserfs:
hoffman:/root# chattr +i /etc/hosts
chattr: Inappropriate ioctl for device while reading flags on /etc/hosts
ie, the filesystem doesn't support extended attributes at all presently.
There is a fairly difficult to follow write-up on why here:
In summary, they don't seem to want to start incrementally adding things
