[Samba] Administrator is root - I don't like it

The "Samba-3 by Example" instructs you to make a mapping, "root =
Administrator". Is this absolutely necessary? What if someone hacks a
Windows machine and is able to supply Administrator credentials to Samba?
Is there a way around this? I can live with having to supply root
credentials in Windows when joining a Samba domain (but if there were
another way I would love to know how!), but I wouldn't want any network
admin to be able to screw with root's account.
