It's not obvious. There are many good reasons why I'd rather blow away home 
and start from scratch, and that's why I asked the question. I've kept home 
over many installation/upgrades - I've tried it, I know how it works, and I 
don't want to do it this time

Your social commentary and grade-score is of no interest to me in this 
particular context - I don't use the default partitioning any way - I hear 
people thanking the hard working developers, not saying its perfect, and I 
agree with them - kudos to a fine job, it's not perfect, nothing is - nobody 
would agree on what would constitute perfection anyhow
