No need. Many users find sudo a PITA. You do sudo and then come back after 10 
mins or so and must do it again. It's a PITA.

Most distros you use a proper root account and that is easy for people to 
understand. If average Joe can perform root operations with his password, 
then it can also make problems. Admins want root to be for them and user 
accounts to be for users.

Hope that helps.
