why not use root as root?

Maybe I don't understand what you are saying here. I build and test
software routinely on a FAT32 partition, using build environments installed
on either an NTFS or an extfs partition, so I can compare the test results
conveniently. Possibly, you mean that the cygwin drive root installation is
advisable only when installed on the same partition as the OS.
