The issue isn't about the roots, per se.  The issue is about making a  
radical change to default behavior without any kind of wider  
consultation with the operational community.

Sysadmins don't like this kind of change being thrust upon them as a  
default, and the last place they expect to see something of this sort  
is FreeBSD.  Please back these changes out of FreeBSD.
