Well, "secure" can mean so many things. It may mean also
"stability", robustness", .. (Technical persons are
usually carefull, but marketroids...)

One of the things wished for EXT2 is extra robustness,
which can be achieved with writing the meta-data, and
data in correct sequential order to the disk.
... well, all that every database system programmer
have always known to be needed for getting reliable
databases, along with change rollbacks ...

And I too do have my reasons to need NTFS r/w ability..
