They don't recommend it mainly for the same reasons nobody recommends
doing anything that requires locking over NFS:
Too many buggy locking implementations.

If you actually take a look at what sqlite does code wise, it requires
that exactly the same lock mechanisms work that we require work for
FSFS, so we're fine if FSFS would work.
