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

(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?
