That has been the plan.

That is up-to user to choose what to do. If user do not care about
security through any of the terminals then he/she can disable it (or
better not to enable it at all). Then again you can reconsider whole
security concept of the whole system if you do not trust one input.
Making system secure is quite hard job, it kinda requires total
knowledge of the system and that is not always even possible.
