Hi Christian,
hte above scheme worked for me for a couple of years now, both for Ubuntu
and Fedora, interchanging. recently i started setting / to be BTRFS, and as
Ubuntu does not allow to boot off of a BTRFS partititon, / is 9.5GB BTRFS
and /boot is 0.5GB EXT2, and again, works great (touch wood).
