Oh please no! (fine fort the LiveCD, but absolutely NOT for the 
installed version!) I recently HAD to enable the root account in a 
*buntu system as trying to do some batch stuff with BASH with for-in 
loops and stuff is FUTILE without a *proper* root account (yes, I tend 
to use quite a bit for-in loops for repetitive commands in a single 
command line). Seamless security is fine with me, but a *proper* account 
will still be needed for those where should anything go wrong and you 
require to do emergency maintenance.
