That should be discuss at ubuntu-desktop.

However, i find that non administrative item should be in Application- 
 >System Tools, because tools such as hal-device-manager or log  
viewer do not modify the system. Even more, in practice, Application- 
 >System Tools reappear after installing one or two usual program or  
edited menu to enable gconf-editor or new login. (Juste see g-a-i  
System Tools category).

I think that System->Administration should contain admin only task.  
i.e. just hide it for non admin/lpadmin users.
