I second hamluis' caution that such a system on its own doesn't protect against failure of the hard drive, or corruption of the partition table making both partitions inaccessible.
However I use the proposed plan myself - I have Acronis images of all my systems in pristine working condition on another partition, or another drive if the system has more than one hard drive. If the Windows installation becomes unstable or is corrupted I can simply reinstate the backup image. However the images are also backed up to two other locations also (a DVD and a portable HDD), in case a drive simply fails. Then I can re-image a new drive and immediately be back in action.
