I guess that makes sense, as it would prevent people from running X
sessions as root. However, I would hesitate to do this on a server
install by default. Also, does disabling the root account prevent me
from doing "sudo sh" (I wouldn't like to lose that ability), or does
that depend on _how_ the root account is disabled?
