Just some thoughts.

In case of your multiterabyte hard drive with one huge / partition.
Suddely your system starts behave ill, BAD SECTORS arrived! UUhhh, now
your single partition inodes got fsked into oblivion and you are not
able to access your files anymore- never.

If you are worried about your filesystem usage than I'd recommend to
read nightly reports about your system and strongly recommend to
forward all reports to your external mail server- in case you are lazy
to read them locally. In case of disastrous failure you'll have some
knowledge, what may happend.
