Partitioning external HD

I am going to buy a Lacie d2 Quadra 1 TB external HD for my primary bootable backup of my mac pro, and I was wondering, are there any disadvantages to partitioning the large HD up in, say, three smaller partitons so that I can keep three separate bootable backups on the external HD?

Eg. One main backup of the system, and two "working" backups that I would then do every other week.

Is it safe to partition the drive up this way and use it for full, bootable backups?

Regards, Esben
