If you put other interruptable commands in there before the reboot, wouldn't it be possible to ctrl-C those and be dropped into a shell? Even a well placed ctrl-C might drop them into a shell whether there's an fsck in the script or not. Not that automating your fsck is a bad idea, I just don't think people should be given the idea that doing this is necessarily 'secure' if it's possible to easily bypass.
