If I consider it, there are many more issues .. e.g. you should have
console access available until ssh/sudo works. Harden_suse will take away
su/sudo rights for plain users, and ssh will not let you in remotely as
root. But this is only an issue if your server is at a remote data center
or ISP :-)

One more hint:
harden_suse inserts in hosts.deny the line 'all execpt localhost'
By this ssh-connetions to (open_)sshd are disabled.
