Another one: What about LVM snapshots? and/or btrfs snapshots?
Either way would be less wasteful than a whole partition that would be
obsolete in a few weeks and may or may not have to deal with byte
growing pains if the initial size is too small years down the road.
Another scenario: Your Fedora 14 rescue boot partition was built against
kernel 2.6.34, but the root file system of your Fedora 18 installation
is of a new experimental file system only found in kernel 2.6.38. The
rescue partition is wasted space at this point.
