Re: yet another 'new, shiny' feature that gets a *yawn*
"Typically, if you don't let C-level types have their way, they send you on your way."
And typically companies have processes and policies around admin rights that you get fired for ignoring. I have worked in many many varied companies and NEVER do standard user accounts get admin rights. If a C-type REALLY needs admin access then it's via a separate admin login with no profile / email etc so that you just use it when admin is actually required. Someone in your company isn't managing their users properly and you have a weak security policy and processes.
As I said, good luck with staying in business...
