there have been benefits in doing this, depending on the filesystems in use. At one time (& I'm not exactly sure about the current situation) you could not boot with the kernel on some partition types such as ext3. The ext3 part of the problem may now be cured, but I am unsure of the situation with ext4, reiser4, xfs, jfs, btrfs, zfs, nilfs...
Most definitely not a problem with XFS
