Use my example above, supose you need to sync passwd between two hosts, using an script via cron. Even if you tar/chown it and copy with low level user, you will need to regenerate the passwd.
Then i should use different methods (ldap?) and then i would build scripts, tar as root, transfer as (low_level_user), rebuild as root.
Just cronts, no transfers etc done as root, only the local things as root. Just to prevent anything scary :-)
