ROOT-only sounds fine to me.  The main use of a non-root user for me would be for testing SlackBuilds, and I don't have to use sbopkg for this (though root could drop perms as mentioned in a feature request).

Non-root users really only need to view the Changelog and search/browse the repo.  Non-admins could just use links/lynx on SBo if they need this from their console ;)
