I normally leave / on a partition, maybe /scratch, maybe
primary swap (most systems today don't swap enough to make
it worth the diffrernce). My sandbox area is mounted under
/sandbox, which is also on LVM, along with any database

Only point is to keep the root volume small enough that it
doesn't need to grow, which means it can conviently be put
onto a partition.
