No, I would expect everyone with root access to be a member of
MonkeyRun. If you're not part of the group with the job of maintaining
servers, why do you have root access to production boxes?

Even if your main job is CF/db/whatever, if you need root access
you should also be part of the server admin group, so you know
about and have an input into any upcoming changes.
