I've done it about 1 year ago.
It is working very good.
When I encounter a problem with upgrading ports, I can rollback to old one by swapping a partition.
I put everything under /ports partition and use mount_nullfs.
Here is how it looks like:
% df | grep port
/dev/ad3s1e 5583486 3841966 1294842 75% /ports
/ports/db/pkg 5583486 3841966 1294842 75% /var/db/pkg
/ports/X11R6 5583486 3841966 1294842 75% /usr/X11R6
/ports/local 5583486 3841966 1294842 75% /usr/local
/ports/compat 5583486 3841966 1294842 75% /usr/compat
/dev/md0.uzip 886686 391416 424336 48% /usr/ports
