Boot partition is boot partition and ESP is ESP, they shouldn't mix.

The boot partition is historical relic we introduced to workaround boot problem
on some scenarios, what we have to do is not dependent on it at all, if boot
loader technology get breakthrough.

For example, fully disk encryption (kerenl and initrd exposed ..) and btrfs
snapshot (can't snapshot your kernel and config status with rootfs) will suffer
by separate (ext3,vfat) boot partition, also in software raid you'd better get
your /boot mirrored in case any fail happened you have backup and boot your
system again .. (otherwise you have to duplicate your /boot to different disks
after kernel update)
