It's not required, it's recommended. You can format all 4 partitions with ext4 
and with the new gta04-init it will work.

But please note how hard is to support users if everybody uses different 
scheme. E.g. qtmoko is searching media files on media partition. And i simply 
_have_ to write something in /etc/fstab...

If you skip the first partition you will never be able to upgrade bootloader 
without deleting the whole SD...

If you skip the media partition, you wont have backups, downloaded map tiles, 
mp3 and all of that will be lost when you reinstall rootfs...
