You could do it this way, but IMHO you will most likely outgrow the
hardware before you ever have problems. Modern cards have wear
leveling, which prevents the same portions of the card from being
used too many times.
If you're that worried about log writes, you can also just add more
RAM, send them to /dev/shm, and then periodically move them somewhere
more permanent. Granted, you will lose data in the event of a kernel
panic, but this might be an acceptable tradeoff.
