My house isnt built for moving furniture, it's built for living in. I've not
moved a bed in or out of the bedroom in 8 years now. But for the 15 minutes
I did move a bed, the door and hallway had to accomodate it.

Humans have to go into datacenters - often in an emergency. Complicating the
servicing of equipment by having sweat drip off you into the electronics is
not condusive to uptime.
