A huge +1. This is just a no-brainer for end-users, having a
separate /home makes it massively easier to recover from all sorts of
problems. I really don't see a downside. Except in the case where you're
installing to a very small amount of space - there could be a simple
heuristic which uses a single / partition when there's, say, 6GB or less
space available.
