Aren't like nearly all of them a concern?  We gone from having some
containment (not being to create users, shut the system down, ...), to
none.  I do however think there's a fair argument to be made that other
platforms do not have a similar containment (no root, but sudo etc is
still possible), and that the containment isn't super strong.

Can't we, to reduce the size of the behavioural change, just use
AdjustTokenPrivileges() to re-add the privileges we want?
