[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] Difference between retail rootfs and developer rootfs

What's the difference between the rootfs installed by default on  
devices that ship with OS2006 and Maemo_Dev_Platform_v2.0_armel- 
rootfs.jffs2 (besides USB networking and root access being enabled)?  
What does "easier debugging" mean besides root access?

Or to ask another way, is there any reason why I wouldn't want to  
flash in the developer rootfs? Is saving space the only reason why  
the device doesn't ship with a rootfs equivalent to the developer one?
