FAT32 is the only safe choice. (Nobody's NTFS support besides
Microsoft's can "safely" be used for RW access: everything else is
experimental for write access. That's because of Microsoft's refusal
to release documentation of their file system.)

Plausible, but also experimental. There's a tad greater reason to
imagine that the RW modes won't break things because Apple provides
better documentation of the format, but most of what's out there is
looking pretty stale:
