I think you can argue this both ways to be honest.

The current fashion for linux installers is to use one partition for the
whole OS (or perhaps two), but if you read a classic unix textbook you
will see that 5+ partitions is a normal setup and general hardening
advice would be to severely limit /tmp (also remove it's ability to hold
executables, etc).

No strong feeling either way here though
