Well, it allow a sysadmin to trigger a fsck at boot without having to
change some boot loader setup, and in a way that make sure it only
last for one boot.

Thus, I believe it fill a real need and is not unnecessary.

The fact that it only work when / is writable is not really unsafe, it
is just a requirement that the sysadmin need to be aware of if / is
mounted read only by default.

Happy hacking
