Root is supposed to be the almighty god on your machine (i.e. you...).
No point trying to limit the abilities of root (especially if physical
access is also provided).
And seriously, root is a role not a person. If you find yourself trying
to limit root's capabilities, you've probably surrendered the root
password to the wrong person. If you need to give someone limited root
access to a machine, just use security/sudo instead (with a carefully
crafted sudoers file).
