There's no real story on that other than "uid 0" and $EDITOR yet.
This is basically the same as all the other OS config files.

No...we have a handful of apps that audit changes to trusted databases. password and adduser are two examples.

Why doesn't someone throw the entire set of config files into a version control system? With bonus points for permitting it to reside remotely and contain similar machines as branches. Aside from wanting to know who changed what and when, the more important issue is usually what was there last week when it still worked, or how it is different from a similar machine. And the machine in question may not be working when you need to know this.
