/boot is very small and usually it's a good idea to have it in the begining of
the disk so bootloaders don't have problems with dealing with it.
At least this was a requirement with ancient distributions/disks/bios :)
I'm not sure if the same happens today on any arch or port...
If that's the case then /boot, swap, everything else would be safer.
This bug report actually belongs to partman-auto in which there are the
