mysql's added user


I have a question for you package masters -- in one of the mysql package's postinst files, it creates the 'debian-sys-maint' database user.  My question is why is this user created?  Is it solely for the apt upgrade process or are there other reasons for its existence?  I would rather not have any additional users who have permission to shut my database down, so I thought I would just ask.
