I thing you should use LVM to be very flexible on partitioning and

mount /home to a LV-Volume
mount /srv/samba/apps to a LV-Volume (for Programms)
mount /srv/samba/groups to a LV-Volume (for Special Groups)
mount /srv/samba/profiles to a LV Volume (for Profiles)

Let 5-15% (or more, when you at the time doesnt now how fast 
every "Mointpoint" will grow or need space) free Space on the Volume Group 
for unexpected Situations.

Hope to give some hints
