None.

But an attacker is likely to try "root" and "admin" and "administrator", 
and failing, move on to another system.  And an unsophisticated (valid) 
user is less likely to make a mess if they can't log in as root. 
Anybody savvy enough to create or unlock the root account probably also 
knows what they are doing.
