i just decided to take a box, and installworld, without going to single user

other then myself (su'd to root), there were no other users logged in).

i wonder how many people are brave enough, and do actually installworld
without changing to single user mode?  i wonder what is truly at risk from
not going to single mode?

I do it on production servers all the time, with multiple users logged in ... the only time I've been burnt was when trying to do an upgrade from 4.x to 6.x where enough changed that /bin/sh even blew up :( But, in that case, it was only my desktop, so no risk ...
