That is assuming authentication is valid and non-destructive. Suppose your superuser password got leaked, for one reason or another, but the user or malicious participants ip network is banned, then disregarding bans on superuser authentication would be a big problem.

Another thing to consider is that banning could be an effective counter-measure for specific types of DoS attacks; if the aggressor were spamming authentication requests. Again, disregarding bans on superuser authentication would open that door again.
