If a System Administrator needs to get a specific user off his computer, unless he has some kind of utility, he is going to have to walk down there to that building, to that floor, to that cubicle, and log him off that computer.

Imagine for example that an employee (let us call him Jack) is fired and knows that his dismissal is coming. Jack is logged on at 04:00 pm and at 04:05 pm a System Administrator disables and/or deletes his account. Guess what happens? Jack is still logged on to that workstation and maybe connected to some servers. All he has to do is unlock that workstation, and typically workstations do not go and check unlock requests with the domain controller.
