Dumb filesystem idea

Im about to try a disklayout experiment and I wanted to ask everyone if
Im trying things that are pointless or if I should extend the experiment
Highpoint RocketRAID 2320
2xWD Raptor 74GB
5xWD Caviar 320GB
Original idea for the setup:
74GB RAID1 (Raptors)
50GB RAID0 (Caviars[10GB from each - maybe less])
1TB+ RAID5 (Caviars[the rest])
/home (or just general storage)
The goal is to waste as few fast/reliable space as possible on things that
CAN be lost and to generally reorganize the filesystem by file purpose.
Known issue is that I'll need some script to recreate the RAID0
filesystems when they crash.
Am I onto something here? I feel like running in circles - it's dumb to
put /var/obj on the RAID1 where it just eats valuable space. But it's also
dumb to put things on a RAID0 where they will crash a running system in
the event of disk failure. I know my idea won't work but I wanted to ask
if anyone was playing with similar ideas.
