Yes, I generally don't put any partitions in a memory filesystem.
There may be specialty applications where it would be desirable.
And indeed, I do sometimes mount a temporary ram filesystem, for
archive extraction/build. That can be a lot quicker then extracting
and writing on one disk, but I nuke the memory filesystem when done
because how much available ram helps a running system performance.
