In fact, it is my thinking that we should adjust the default sshd_config to set the PermitRootLogin field to 'without-password' by default, since it won't do anything unless the SSH keys are also installed in root's authorized_keys file.

Sounds like a good idea. The option should have been called something else though. One of my co-workers saw

PermitRootLogin without-password

in some of the config files I set up, and nearly had a
panic-attack!  Some phrase more like "only-by-keys".  Or
at least include a comment in the sshd_config file which
makes that clear to admins who aren't used to seeing that
