Security I see as separate from multi-user.  Certainly we need protection
from malicious remote access, but Haiku/BeOS already has that, no?

Not really... All processes are running with the right of user root, so anyone can log in trough ssh to your system, compile a program that will run "rm -rf /" or any other weirdness and run it witout any problem. While on linux they'd only get 'permission denied'.
