Call them "modes" instead of "users" or whatever, "multi-user" doesn't require that the different accounts actually belong to different people. Of course that is an obvious and natural use of the technology.
if only it were that simple
sometimes it's not feasible to not give end users local admin rights due to trusted/aka 'crap/badly written' software requiring admin access to update itself
And then on top of that the 100+ phone calls asking you to install their 3rd party software when they can't do it because of restrictions.
Even giving them a separate 'local' admin account to do the above doesn't help as they don't understand the difference or what they're doing (even with full graphic instructions).
