At one time, one could not log in to a GNOME session on Fedora as the
root account. Now, you can, out of the box. For me, this seems like
less of a "getting in the user's way" thing, and more of a common sense
default security policy - especially given all the work done to make
things work smoothly with polkit. Am I missing something? If not, what
about going back to blocking root login to desktop environments?

I think it's not good. But may be obviated by plans to nix the installer
offering the setting of a root password.
