my rule of thumb is to always have atleast 2 partitions on the first 2

interesting tweaks.

Even with software raid1, setting up reliable boot from either drive
if one fails can be interesting, but it has gotten a lot better than it
used to be.

is that monitoring of the raid drives or the actual drives underneath, I
like having smartctl to give me access to the actual drive health

Well monitoring of raid health would be minimum.  Getting more details
would be nice.

As would auto-replacement of bad drives by hot spares.
