I wouldn't do that if I was you; you may find that each distribution
screws up the other's bootloader at kernel update time. Given that 100MB
is ample for a /boot partition, is there any particular reason why you
want to share them rather than have two?

P.S. Swap partitions aren't mounted on /swp...
