I think if the main design of any system was run as mortal and do runas for
things that need more, you would have a system that by default, NEVER
allowed interactive logon to an account that does more. Further it wouldn't
let you change that code to allow it. Heck I would even take it further and
say that the raised levels of access would be process only based, once that
process completed, it would revert.
Let me choose if I even want a browser loaded thanks!

There is such a thing as "runas" for Windows.
Yes, but is *the main design* of the system "run as a mortal, and use the
'runas' for those things that need more"?
Or is the *main design* "We'll just elect the first user as Administrator,
and include 'runas' in case somebody wants to Do It The Right Way"?
Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
