I am not overwhelmed by this "overwhelming argument": I do clean
installs and upgrades just fine with /home in /.

How?

I actually prefer to keep separate my /home and my /opt directories. And make sure they stay on the main partition, just in case of a disk failure before a backup. As I keep updating with each new version of Fedora core, I tend to collect a lot of individual "stuff" that I do not wish to keep reinstalling. And for that reason I even keep a separate /opt directory/mount point that I use to hold the previous version of Fedora core plus any other extra applications that I want to make sure to keep and not have to reinstall for each new build.
So during your install just keep your /home and /opt the same.
