Windows already has a higher privilege level than admin for trusted
media/etc, so I'm not sure what this really would gain them.  And
Intel/AMD both offer effectively a higher level of privilege than that
in their trusted platform implementations.

This is just incompetence.  MS doesn't gain anything from blocking
users from the admin account on their own machines, because they
already have a secure environment it can't touch.
