That's of course obvious.

Also obviously agreed upon.

What I do not understand - you said:

My question is a technical one, not a philosophical one: How could a
personalized user account be "administrative" if not added to the
appropriate group, in this case "Domain Admins". So, how else should a
user perform domain administrative tasks, if it's not a specifically
created user account that is member of the "Domain Admins" group?
