Sorry for being late to the party.

I'm ok with no root login assuming that one can ssh into the machine (and
become root somehow) after an install (this is along the lines of what Harald
Reindl mentioned yesterday).

Seems that this means there must be some other user account on the system (or
just use "PermitRootLogin without-password" which is my favorite option right
now anyway). I guess you'll take care of that?
