Putting MySites in its own Web App allows you to assign a separate  Application
Pool that is only used for MySites. That way anything that happens in MySites
won't bring down your normal sites and problems in your normal sites won't bring
down your MySites. This is particularly important if the rest of your farm is
spread across multiple Web Apps.

Web application general settings
User permissions for Web application
Policy for Web application
