I still like having a separate boot partitions for a couple of
reasons. Although it's mounted, having on a separate partition
provides a little security from something happening to the root
filesystem, such a a full disk scenario or rogue process screwing up
the file system.

Also, I keep an image of  System Rescue CD, MHDD, and memtest86 on my
/boot with menu entries in GRUB which can be handy. I went ahead when
I upgraded to F13 and made it 1GB, on modern disks it doesn't cost
