The problem with large IT environments is that they are filled with idiots. You get companies to scale up by employing a bunch of trained monkeys who follow a processes designed for trained monkeys. This leads to an office full of trained monkeys that you simply can't trust with root.
I despise what Fortune 500 IT policies do to a desktop machine. I can also kind of relate to why it's done that way.
