I was just testing this today and the installation failed because the btrfs partition I wanted to set as / wasn't mounted.
The installer didn't ask for its mount point when I selected btrfs as the type.

currently you cannot mount the btrfs root.
this is because users are supposed to add subvolumes and mount those, as if you work in the root directly you end up with various painfull limitations,
see for more info.
However, the code for managing subvolumes does not exist yet.
