If you choose to leave it on, remember that when you want to run command-line utilities like dcdiag or repadmin, that you will always have to launch the command prompt as an Administrator.  Other than that it, it's really just a matter of preference.

I know UAC got a very bad wrap but I like that extra level of security.  There is no correct answer here, just depends on your environment and what you are comfortable with.
Hopefully there are only a very small handful of admins that would ever log into this new DC.
Thanks
