su versus su -/su -l/su --login

To start the YaST Control Center in text mode simply type 'yast' on command line
(e.g. in xterm, konsole).
e.g. in an xterm or in konsole. Make sure you are logged in as user root (if
not become root by typing 'su'). 

I thought that it would be in most times not wise to get only root privileges without loading the environment of root. So the command that includes the login (man su: "-, -l, --login make the shell a login shell") should be preferred, or not?
