It's a security feature to prevent the many, many stupid things you could do if your account were invoking every command with full administrative privileges regardless of whether they were actually needed.

is admin even true admin anymore? (as in making an account with admin privileges, not the hidden admin user)

Even running as the disabled admin user won't fire up every program you start with administrative privileges. They don't need them and all you'd accomplish is making it super easy to hose your system or get infected by malware.
