Wire two bathrooms differently?

This may seem like a strange question, but sometimes codes make you do some strange things. I know I have 2 options to wire my bathrooms, everything in the bath on one dedicated circuit, or seperate the recepticles from the other outlets, but can I use both methods within the same house? That probably makes no sense right now, so let me expand.

I have a full bath on my first level on one end of the house & am going to be adding a 1/2 bath on the second level on the other end of the house. For the full bath I want to put all my recepticles on the dedicated 20A GFCI circuit & my lights & exhaust fan on a general lighting circuit.

For the half bath I just want the entire bathroom to be on it's own dedicated circuit. What I want to avoid is running a length of wire for the bath GFCI circuit the full length of my house to grab just one GFCI outlet that will be in the 1/2 bath.
