TfsService account: Admin

Why must the TfsService account now be added as an Administrator since this was not a requirement for the TFS installation? Just wondering why the TfsSetup could not have been used again.

It's not really. You just need an account that has permission to add, modify, etc work items and resources in TFS and Project Server. For most users, its easiest to just add TFSService since it already has these permissions. However, its not necessary if you set up another account with this.
