In the News "The Russian state plans to revamp its computer services with a Windows rival to reduce its dependence on US giant Microsoft and better monitor computer security, a lawmaker said Wednesday. Moscow will earmark 150 million rubles (3.5 million euros, 4.9 million dollars) to develop a national software system based on the Linux operating system, Russian deputy Ilia Ponomarev told AFP, confirming an earlier report in the Vedomosti daily." Right. I guess this has absolutely nothing to do with this. Want to buy a unicorn?

Well, the main problem is that You have to maintain it separately from the rest of the system. While certain level of security is provided by the means of Your distribution of choice, You have to manually maintain Your chroot, investigate the security issues of the chroot versions and etc. It is a significant overhead.
