The point is not about the installation behaviour.
It is related to download operations that do not requires any admin elevations for gettings files from the web.
As said in the suggestion above, admin accounts usually do not have access to the web, but users' ones do have.
Thus, to enable developers that work on secured network/policies (admin/user account split), admin elevation shall be required only when "really" needed (installation purpose, not offline installation download).
It is a must have in enterprise scenario.
