Not necessary. You can install over the top and retain the home
directory without it being a separate partition.

However I'm not sure I'd do that given you are going backwards. It's
possible that configuration files in your home directory will have
been 'upgraded' to support new releases of applications you use, and
going backwards might not be possible for those applications.

Perhaps you could figure out what's wrong with 10.10 and look for /
file bugs. I'm sure the list would be happy to help you with that.
