Hey Matthieu,

Maybe, but it's done quite a lot in practice FWIW.  I frequently
find networks that have removed the "Default-First-Site" or its
localized equivalent.  And find some network segments configured
for no site at all (which is definitely a bad idea).  And child
domains purposely configured with no access to the parent domain
(root of the forest).

cheers, jerry
