Your logic is terrible. If there is no sysadmin, who would be typing the
pg_stop_backup() ? Who would have misconfigured it in the first place?

If you have a concrete proposal, get off your soapbox and make one,
based upon the technical information you've received. There are clear
reasons why things are the way they are and those reasons will not be
ignored, by me.
