Yes, currently it's root. And the code suggests also that is the 
purpose, in pve-container/src/PVE/API2/LXC.pm we have the following 
parameter description in the create_vm method:

And it's also hard coded root in the Base.pm plugin for LXCSetup:
> $self->set_user_password($conf, 'root', $root_password);

and for container it's always the root password, AFAIK. But I have 
absolutely no problems if it stays like it is :D
