That's a definite No, I would say. The NTFS-3G driver is probably not
stable enough, and you may run into all kinds of random problems.

Not sure if Windows likes that.

This is definitely the best solution. Disk space is not that expensive
any more, just use a few gigs for each. Swap partitions are definitely
the preferred way of doing swap space.
