technically you can snapshot whatever you want. snapper can also (kind
of) work with LVM and ext4, so btrfs is not an absolute requirement.

Bootloaders can boot from btrfs.

The only danger I can see is that you want to make sure that the booted
kernel and initramfs lying around on /boot is consisted with the
actually installed kernel. Otherwise you might be in for some trouble,
when trying to load modules ...

Best regards,
