Great point, Q. Just today I had an issue with a Windows Server 2003 Terminal Server that's RDP access went on the fritz. I had enabled Telnet just the other day to test something and thank GOODNESS I left that gaping security hole open. I was able to restart a few services and restore remote access. Of course, with native SSH access I could keep a secure line open all the time.
