It is the traditional way of doing things.

Someone must be in charge and that is root..

Sudo was intended to give other folks limited privileges.

You form bad habits with no root and having unlimited privileges with
sudo.  This is not the case in the work environment.

In the work environment you are in /home/user and have NO privileges. 

My $.02
