Not always - most of the time XP just informs you that you do not have rights to access it. This is a step in the correct direction. I will hold off on judgement until further info comes out.

Only in a few places (E.g., Users and Passwords control panel in Win2k). But not in most of the cases where it would be useful - try going into Network Connections as a Limited User.
