Allow an IIS-bound project to be opened in non-admin Visual Studio

Visual Studio needs to be running with elevated administrator privileges to interrogate the IIS metabase and/or attach to the IIS worker process for debugging. However being able to view, edit, compile, and unit test the code in an IIS-bound Web Application Project is no different than any other project and should not require IIS access or therefore Administrator privileges.

In a non-admin VS instance I should only be prevented from debugging an IIS-bound project.
