For home users, it is complete stupidity IMO. How many people have friends or relatives who are going to hack the login screen, anyway?

For businesses, schools, etc. that will have a lot of people logging in, I can certainly understand having it enabled, provided it works right. Even then, if the business/school/etc. sets up their read/write permissions correctly and are as careful as possible who they provide root access to, they shouldn't have to worry. Besides, if they give root access to someone who's untrustworthy, that would invalidate any reason for having SAK enabled.
