I've been using noatime for some months on /usr with no apparent ill effects. Running Apache 1.x, Named, Dovecot, Squid, Samba, Fetchmail & Sendmail, among other things. I don't use noatime on the other mounts. I seem to vaguely recall it causing some things to break. It may have been something like tail -F /var/log/messages not working the way it should, but don't quote me on that.
