It's not required, it's just nice to do if the disk space is available.
You can allocate the whole disk to /. With all the free space in one
filesystem, that's useful for small disks (under 8G, I'd say).
Keeping the filesystems separate provides some versatility at the
expense of splitting up the free space. dump(8)ing a 300M / or a 100M
/var is a lot easier than a 100G whole disk.
