Hmm is there much point then in having /var separate?

I have 300 users that need 200mb max space each. That's 60gb of user data if
maxed out. The data will generally be in /var/db/mysql and /home

Now if I was to have a 2gb /var, if it gets filled up by say half the users'
databases, then there's half left whom will be unable to create databases
since /var is full. 

That's why I want to put all if not most user data on one partition.

If I put /home on /usr, I might as well just do the following and save any
headaches...

/       500mb
swap    4gb
/usr    remainder

Then /home -> /usr/home
And /var -> /usr/var
