Because you should never run anything as root unless you have to.
root has enormous privileges most things don't need, so running
arbitrary programs as root opens massive security holes.
One of Zope's zdaemon tests in particular doesn't get the restricted
permissions it tests for if you run as root, so that test fails if you
do run as root.
