Why would you particularly care to root a Macintosh?
I'm sure the vast majority of the machines in question are personal desktops with one or two user accounts. I'm no hacker, but it seems to me that anything you would want to exploit - sending of spam, grabbing of keystrokes - could be done almost as easily in userspace, without needing to sudo at all.
So... while do I understand, on principle, why you don't want the sanctity of your root violated - If I owned a shiny white box, I'm not sure I could force myself to give two craps that it has a root vuln which requires me to execute it myself.
