Having /var and /home on separate partitions is not

Is that what you are saying, the "/" and "/var" and "/home" all be on
one filesystem? If that is the case, why not "/tmp" and "/usr" and
"/usr/local", huh?

I have to disagree with you.

That right there is a typical installation. I am guessing you have never
actually supported large numbers of users. This particular machine hosts
15 domains and plus their sub-domains.

Can you honestly tell me how you arrived at your conclusion? If it is
reasonable, you might change my mind.
