We can install machine w/o user accounts, removing the ability to log
in as root via ssh means those machines will not be accessible.
If you want to remove root access that should be conditionally done at
firstboot only if a user account was created.
It seems to me that we could tweak this somewhat: "only if a user
account was created OR remote users have been configured"
