This, coming from someone as security minded as you?

I don't like my systems defaulting to single user mode - if the password
file is corrupt going into single-user mode, then it accepts ANY password
at all, and gives root access.  IIRC, that's why this functionality was
originally removed from the bootscripts back in the day.
