"Some Unix-style file systems such as ReiserFS omit an inode table"

To be an absolutely linguist reductionist, yes that is true; a B+ tree list is
NOT the same as a table.

"ReiserFS doesn't use inodes."

It can't NOT. The information, the 'meta-data', ha to be there, has to be
available, otherwise the file could not be accessed. That you can do a 'stat()'
on a file on a ReiserFS proves that it is there.

"For example, ReiserFS does not use traditional inodes."

Again, being an absolutely linguist reductionist, I would say that "ReiserFS
does not internally represent inodes in a tradition manner".
