We intentionally stayed away from managing root passwords on the systems however it might make sense to start managing root passwords on the enrolled systems with the addition of the vault feature.
For example SSSD can grow a helper that would periodically set root password to some generated value and upload this value to IPA vault. It can be reveled if needed from vault by a privileged admin.
