Your 'felt conflict' may result when installing OpenBSD to a 
stand-alone workstation, because root and user might be the 
same person: 

<user> blames <root> for not configuring the box correctly and 
<root>, who doesn't know better and can't blame <user>, complains 
to OpenBSD for 'not being secure by default'. 

Hence, it's rather a conflict between subject roles than a problem 
of OpenBSD.
