I have a real-world example for an application needing the service API
and the logevent API. No user-account switching and "extensive
compatibility with the Windows security mechanism" is required.
It could very well be run in a special account, and doing that would IMO
not raise substantial security issues. 

All that's needed is a working service implementation in the sense that
services can be registered which wine would start automatically when
it's launched.
