Maybe I am missing the point here, but the whole idea of an Admin making an account with limited privileges is so the user can't run certain apps or install things. App developers are not concerned (nor should they be) with what Admins decide on who can install or run things on a system.
Just out of curiousity, why don't you just run under the Admin account?
In Mac OS X, there is no reason why you can't run on your Admin user, because unlike most *nix style OSes the root is still disabled by default, even for the Admin user. As trpnmonkey pointed out, there are still times where you will need to activate and enable root to do things, even as the Admin.
