It's definitely not an oversight, it's an additional safety net for people who continue to run as Administrator even with a permission elevation subsystem in place.

This is obvious from the fact that UAC clearly distinguishes between the two, presenting a simpler dialog for Administrators.

It's a needed remedy until people get out of the "Run as Admin" mentality.
