Per the docs, a disabled QSECOFR can log on the console. Is that not true?

It's a great idea until you need QSECOFR to do something on the system
all your other high authority profiles are disabled, and the profile youthat
have does not have sufficient authority.
So you can sign into DST to reset the IBM i QSECOFR profile, but damn
just got disabled too. Now you don't have ANY high authority profiles to--
fix whatever it is that requires high authority. If you can't get one of
those two profiles fixed then to recover them you must reload the system
(entirely) from tape.
Yea, great idea. (OK I'm a bit snarky here but at some point you gotta
wonder who am I protecting?)
Yes long passwords
Yes restrict devices
Monitor security logs to look for attempts to hack it
Make DANG sure you have a profile (no Q in first position) that is a back
that is as heavily protected/restricted.
Disabled, not on my systems.
