When I did the original setup for the clean install, Disk Utility did not give me a UFS option.  The only thing CLOSE was the ‘UNIX’ option.  And that was described as a ‘don’t go there’ kind of thing.  My installation(s) of Tiger in a HPFS+ partition work wonderfully and (apparently) do not de-bless anything.

HFS+, actually, HPFS is another thing, never ben supported by Apple.
I think UFS support was dropped years ago, when HFSX (that is HFS+ with case sensitiveness) was introduced. It has never been the recommended FS anyway since some software had some incompatibilities with it, only useful for kernel development.
