Root shell

Why is this not a good idea? The only reason I can think of it that you
want your root shell on the root hard drive. As many system use a
separate partition for /usr and that bash installs to /usr/local/bin per
default I can see how that can cause troubles. But are there any other
reasons? Unstability in bash? Unexpected behaivor causing more harm in a
root shell?
