    I also have a separate /home partition [...]
    A separate home makes lots of sense, IMHO. Yet, due to full disk encryption (including boot partition ) and restricted size of SSDs, I moved to a one (resp. two, another one for swap) partition setup. Using subvolumes, the free space of system and home can be shared. That's really great for small SSDs (like the 256GiB one in my notebook). And since everything is in one partition, there is no need for LVM to encrypt everything with the same key.

      What benefit do you see in a separate home, assuming you don't have many distros on the same machine.
      (My main SSD is way smaller than yours, and I don't see a problem
      I got a bigger one later, but it died once and since I got it replaced I don't trust it and only use it for bcache...)

        Luks encrypted root and until now zstd compressed root force you to without a lot of workarounds.

          Have different raid modes in that partition ?
          (currently, on my lap top, system is RAID0 for data, whereas home is RAID1 for data. Both have RAID1 for metadata).

            Nope, no RAID for anything, and no difference of FS whatsoever between the 2.
