Absolutely nothing stops a user from booting their workstation with a LiveCD that they have root access to.
Except the fact that this user can be an unauthorized one who've just cracked into the system from an other continent using the latest bug in a PHP BBS and his processes are running as 'nobody' user. He'd have hard time putting a live CD into the computer, but still we really don't want him to send arbitrary packets into the network.
