What happens if you lose network connectivity / nfs and you need
to be able to use sudo (eg. system crash/restart)?

Guess you'll need the root password, anyway (eg. failed fsck).

Or perhaps worse, the NFS server has some sort of issue and the share
disappears or becomes unresponsive?

In Tennessee, it is illegal to shoot any game other than whales from a
moving automobile.
