well, yes, ;-) that would be one way. But you will _never ever_ see documentation about how to break into the system within the official manuals. Feel free to write a Wiki article.

I think it's already there.

This position is understandable, but also questionable.

In fact, IMHO there should be at least an exclamation mark saying "it's pretty easy for any people with physical access to a computer to defeat any root passwd on non-encrypted system. Strong encryption is the only somewhat safe mean to protect sensitive data, at the cost of the risk of losing this data is the password is forgotten"

may be it's already there :-)
