Then change your .bashrc to include /sbin in the PATH, don't do it
"universally" for all users and much less *enforce* insecure practices.
Besides as I said, many of the /sbin commands run as regular users, and
just like you I don't see the "burden" to use the full path...
You're seriously suggesting that putting /usr/sbin and /sbin in the
default path is insecure?
