It's not usually a good idea to do that.  Someone being root on one
machine is a risk for that machine.  But if they're also treated as root
across a network, that's even more so.

I can't imagine why root ownership of files ought to be involved in
the /home space, unless you've got someone running as root when they
really shouldn't do, and they're saving files in their homespace.
