I'm under the impression that renaming root /admin is a security feature.

We had data coming from sales depots across Pakistan to our head office in Lahore using 1.44 Floppies couriered in once a month. Some of them would be corrupted and one of my theories was that it was the magnetism from the motorbikes used to get the floppies to the courier office.
This was disputed by one the people there. He insisted that a local jinn had something to do with it. (all replaced by modems eventually resulting in more interesting stories as the staff lost the expense paid trip to the courier office)
The banks / lenders get involved if they can't pay mortgages etc. Government employees living month to month? tsk tsk.
CRA (Revenue Agency) gets involved as somebody has to play catch up to their taxes. If the catch-up is shoved into the next year then there's a danger of getting shoved into the next tax bracket.
I read about people getting worried because after getting overpaid, they will eventually have to pay it back. I would have to put it in a time locked safety box to avoid spending it.
Of course if they keep delaying it, it might get backlogged into oblivion and they decide to start over on a new slate. I suggest they call it: Financial restructuring and intitialisation for increased efficiency, employee participation exercises, global warming to counter fake news as well as preparation for image reconstruction.
