remove the need from having to know the root password, it doesn't
obviate the need for a root user who has all the fun. Sudo would just
get you access to some/all of it.
That said, I think it would be useful in our new user creation that if
we said that this user is the local admin (for whatever that does to
your policykit settings) we also grant them sudo access. Probably the
best way to deal with this is not to munge the /etc/sudoers file, but
instead ship a config file that allows for a certain group or pk role to
have sudo rights, and then when we create the user(s) we either add them
to that group or role or not. That way they can pick up sudo rights
without us having to modify the rpm shipped config file. But now I'm
off in implementation land...
