How so? (Please note I said *can be*, not *has to be*.)
The point of this is to ensure that if someone does illicitly come by
the replication role's password, they can't use it to log in. They can
still steal all your data, but they can't actually get into the
database. I don't see why it's a bad idea to configure things that way.
