But if you're starting in single user mode, only / will be mounted. So
if you have /usr or /usr/local on a separate partition, you'd be screwed.

That is why root should only use a shell that's in the / partition.

You'll be prompted for a shell if your default isn't available.

I've used bash for the root shell for years. Doesn't mean that you will never have a problem but this paticular situation just means you'll have to hit enter to accept /bin/sh or enter another shell when booting into single user.
