I think you're conflating "system administrators" with root. The FHS
stats that sbin directories are for "maintenance and/or administrative
tasks" Not all of these tasks need root privileges, but then most
(hopefully all) of them should not be necessary to normal users.

Maybe the compromise is to have the sbin directories in the path of
users in the "staff" group.
