Running cfservd as a user other than root?

Good folks of the list --
 
Is it feasible to run cfservd as a user other than root?  Since it listens on port 5308, it should be possible, but I am uncertain as to what might break if cfservd were started and run as an unpriveleged (or less-priveleged) user.
 
I can see where the cfexecd needs to run as root, but I must be missing the point as to why the service daemon needs to run as root.
 
Thanks for any help, insight, ideas you can give me.
