Actually, it is. Every day, lose six minutes from having to retype a sudo line due to not having a PATH configured with sbin. Most likely when you're already stressed that something is broken and you just want to find out what as quickly as possible.

If you know something is broken and you need to fix it then why use
sudo on every call to something needing root privileges and not do the
right thing and su -/sudo -i and diagnose and fix the problem?

That fixes your PATH, but it breaks your working directory if you were already in the right place.
