Well, this can be tricky as well, since only one partition can 
be pointed from master boot record. :-) Probably the other 
partition can be booted through chain-loading, but it feels like 
one linux installation is the master and other is secondary.

I myself think shared /boot do make sense, but just as I said 
before, currently it requires some manual work: backup /boot 
before installing new linux, then synchronize the new /boot with 
the old one. Alternatively you can get the new installation to 
have its own temporary /boot without writing MBR, then 
synchronize new temporary /boot with the real /boot.
