Windows and IE updates regularly add new ones and take old ones away.

Not to mention, everything from banking software to firewall software etc. will add their own.

Although a "this is what you should have" program is probably a good idea, actually it'll be just as much pain to maintain as the root certificate list itself, especially tracing the origin of a cert that someone else has that you don't, etc.
