There should be *no* differences between root users and non-root.

If something is not secure enough for root, it is not secure enough
for me, either. [And btw it is impossible to decide who is root
equivalent. I have ssh public key from root on few systems. That means
I'm root equivalent; but how can gnome decide that?]
