[Dev] processes running as root

Hi Tizen developers!

according to the wiki page 
https://wiki.tizen.org/wiki/Security:SmackThreeDomainModel, in Tizen 3.0 
there are processes running as root. In the AMD Multi-User wiki page it 
even says that the AMD daemon runs "as root as in single user mode".

During the workshop in Vannes last week, I got the impression (or at 
least I wrote so in my notes) that no process in Tizen is allowed to run 
as root: at most, processes can be run as setuid root for a limited 
period of time.

Are my notes from the workshop valid or is it actually true that some 
processes are run as root?
