Well...    AFAIK, the DST password requires you to be in the same room with
the computer, and be in the middle of a Manual IPL in order to use it.
Since we have a secured computer room (only a few dozen of our trusted
friends know the door codes) I don't think this is a problem (for us).

We -have- changed all of the default IBM passwords.  Some CEs have been
surprised that QSRV does not respond to the default password.  (:
