  Agreed. It was only meant to convey an idea. Actual UI design and text
could be different.

  Right, that seems unlikely, but there might be cases, I'm not sure. Given
below are the Server SIG meeting logs, wherein this topic was discussed
and the UI changes were suggested.

Please see:

  Not admin, but non-root user. It'll definitely help to enable password-based
root login, if no non-root user is created.

because of the proposed feature change.

Thank you.
