IMHO the only good reason to avoid direct root logins is to provide
accountability on systems with more than one administrator.
In other words I don't see any good reason to avoid direct root login
on systems with only one administrator.

CAfile is *not* relative to chroot. 8-)

CApath *is* relative to chroot. Your symlink won't work in chroot jail. 8-)
I recommend to use CAfile instead of CApath for simple configurations.
It doesn't need a hashed directory and is not relative to chroot jail.
