Not that I have a strong opinion on this matter, but I thought that it was 
worth pointing out that the default Mac install has a similar ability to 
get a root session by pressing the right combination of keys.  (I have 
used it more than once to gain control of a machine where the various 
passwords had been forgotten.)
