No go ahead, this is a good idea.

Yes, you could set the rights for a user that way.

Exactly. You can specific certain commands that certain users are
allowed to run as root, without knowing root's password.
Along with shutdown, "pppd" is another good example of a command you may
want to let users run as root, without giving them the root password.
I even give myself access to some commands with sudo, even though I know
the root password. It saves me time not having to "su" to root to run
some commands I use frequently (like "cdrecord").
