Hi, I think I answered you this question on Reddit a couple of weeks ago already (well, same nick name at least)
We have not yet seen any bugs that could be attributed to ReFS or BlockClone API, it's been very stable for us. I literally didn't report a single bug to ReFS team at Microsoft over the past years, unlike many bugs I reported to Hyper-V team for example.
Generally speaking, I feel pretty confident about ReFS because it is the recommended file system for Hyper-V 2016 on Storage Spaces, so it should have been very well tested by Microsoft in all the years it took to develop Server 2016.
That said, out of common sense and as always with any new technology, it makes sense to start small and see how it goes. This is what I personally would do.
