It used to be the case that various bootloaders would not be
able to boot from a partition larger than a certain size.

If your root partition is encrypted, or uses an exotic
filesystem, a separate /boot may be needed.

A separate /boot may be used as part of a rescue booting system,
so that you can fix a broken /.

If none of those reasons apply, you can safely have a unified /
and /boot.
