I don't mind at all if this is a feature.. But it should be something you have
to specifically turn on.  I don't want to accidentally shut down my machine
because I hit that key sequence.  I have all kinds of wierd X key mappings, and
I don't like the idea of having a "danger key" that someone could hit, or I
could hit by accident.  If it's something you manually turn on in a kernel
config, or a sysctl... thats more than fine with me.. just don't make it a
default key binding..
