That's true.  On one of my systems, I do have a separate /opt just for 
space reasons.  I had several versions of java, xorg, kde, and qt and 
space was getting tight on the root fs.  That can be easier than trying 
to grow a partition in place.

I make a separate partition for /var/log. I've had too many times log-files that grew so large that they crashed the OS by filling / to 100%. (I do use logrrotate and yet it still happens sometimes...)
