Apple driver partitions are necessary for Pre-MacOS X systems. If you
never boot into MacOS 9, you don't need them. I myself will not take the
risk and leave them. You never know, because the day you'll need them
you'll be foobared.
Unlike on PC, Mac partition scheme does not limit itself to 8 partitions
(including extended). So this is not really a problem to have 13
