You may think sudo is doing more than it is designed to do. When you "sudo
vi" you are simply running vi as root. There is no "sudo context" once vi
begins to execute. Given that, it is a common practice amongst sudo
administrators to find other alternatives or exclude altogether the use of
vi with sudo.
