With SSDs, you don't really need a dedicated scratch drive. Aperture, for instance, doesn't (to my knowledge) even use a scratch drive.
Scratch drives are useful to mitigate seek times that severely limit throughput. SSDs have seek times that are pretty much two orders of magnitude faster (i. e. a factor of roughly 100!) than your typical harddrive. If you have bought expensive SSDs, also throughput will be a lot larger, very good SSDs can saturate SATA interface.
If you work with harddrives, putting a scratch volume on the same volume as the data volume is pointless, you'll just eventually run into problems with free space.
