Interesting workaround for 10.13 PB4 system SSD with HFS+:

1.) Clone the 10.13 PB3 system SSD with CCC to a HFS+ SDD.
2.) Format 10.13 PB3 system SSD to HFS+
3.) Restore the 10.13 PB3 HFS+ system SSD Clone to the 10.13 PB3 HFS+ system SSD with CCC
4.) The 10.13 PB3 HFS+ system SSD will boot flawless, and has now the old HFS+ file system
5.) Update to PB4: the file system will remain in HFS+

Conclusions:

1.) Update to PB4 seems not to force the user to use APS file system if PB3 file system SSD is HFS+

2.) The PB3/PB4 HFS+ workaround above should also directly work for PB4
