Well at the end of the day security is account separation, which is effectively dead is the new "streamlined UAC".
Compared to that other enhancement I read on http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd560691.aspx are just minor tweaks or meaningless to consumers, so IMO at least the default install(not the whole OS) is less secure. But defaults matter bigtime when you 94% market share.
