Plan for service accounts in SharePoint Server 2016

I just want to talk about two points related to SharePoint 2016 service accounts which show the differences between current version and previous version of SharePoint server.
In previous version, farm service account has to belong to local administrator group of SharePoint servers especially if you have Forefront Identity Manager and User Profile but because of Forefront Identity Manager is removed from SharePoint Server 2016 no longer requires Local Administrator rights on any SharePoint server.
The second point that Claims to Windows Token Service account is now the only account that continues to require Local Administrator rights (only servers running C2WTS services).
For more details, you can find the below links for Plan for administrative and service accounts in SharePoint Server.
