I agree it's not typical and we don't want it on the published live images.
With a persistent /home I care a bit more about the image getting hosed
than otherwise. I think this will mitigate the affects of some compromises.
(Though the hope is that those don't happen at all.)
There might also be a case where I'd want someone to be able to use the
booted system breifly by switching users rather than taking the time for
a reboot. But I haven't had that show up yet.
