OP's point is that probably in RHEL8 you won't be able to do even
that anymore. While I personally think this is a good idea, this has
some potential to maybe cause trouble or inconvenience down the line,
with regards to automated installs, broken kickstart scripts, various
company policies regarding the root password, etc. I guess there are
sensitive scenarios out there.

So if any CentOS user think they can be hurt by this change, they
should do something about it now, rather than bitch about compatibility
breakage when RHEL8 comes out in a couple of years. :-)

HTH, :-)
