You can put them all in one partition. But I do not do it that way. I have a small root directory, then an extra directory for /var, /home/, /usr

The data are of course kept mostly in the /home branch and  you can backup this data quite easy wilth all kind of tools
(dump, tar, rsync etc) without wasting so much space. And I even have some spare partition which I do not not use at all. I keep it for later if I may need it.

So I'd go against putting it all in one partion. What might come in handy someday is another root partition, on the other harddisk. If you first harddisk crasches you may be able to set-up the new system from this "spare" root.
