The whole permission model for openvpn on Windows has been funky at
best "forever" - open tap device and setup IPv4 address by means of
DHCP could be done "by everyone", while installing routes or setting
up IPv6 then failed for non-Admin accounts...

I'm not exactly sure what you are proposing, but aligning this with
wintun and using the service to get access to tap6-windows sounds
like a reasonable plan.  With a registry key to re-enable "full 
access as today", for compat reasons.
