Generally advised to have a separate boot partition.

I believe this will cause many issues. I'd advise against it.

Fedora doesn't put anything in here so should be fine.

Again not really used for Fedora so should be fine.

In Fedora 18 'tmp' is a RAM backed file system, so you probably don't
need this (unless you have other requirements). Probably a better use of
a partition would be to put 'var' on it.

Generally advised to have a separate home partition.

So you're mostly fine, with the exception of '/usr/lib64'.

Hope that helps,
