Do you mean through the GDM Greeter or by bypassing it with startx?
AFAIK, GDM greeter requires file edition to allow root's logins, but
that's also possible.
So, what (and how) we (or GNOME's policy) want to protect with the
current behaviour? It sounds like "security through obscurity" which
makes no good to anyone.
A car analogy: speed bumps don't *stop* you from speeding, but they
make it more inconvenient.
