You can't make /etc on a different partition than /.
/etc, /sbin, /dev (without devfs) must on the / partition otherwise your
system will not boot.
If you use a decent layout fopr your data it does not matter.
If you have a separate /usr /var /tmp /home like most servers do you could
just mount your / fs O_SYNC since it would only have a _very_ slight
performance loss since you almost never write to the root fs. :-)
Every program has two purposes one for which
it was written and another for which it wasn't
I use the last kind.
