SQL rights vs Project Server 2010

I got a Sharepoint 2010 with Project server 2010 integrated farm.

According to the project server 2010 deployment: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee662108.aspx I need set the following rights for the Farm Admin Account: "dbcreator, securityadmin and sysadmin"

So first off I do not need other server roles checked when I check sysadmin.

But the big question is, why do I need to use sysadmin for the FARM account? Anybody been here?

This sounds like one of those cases where you give a system its own dedicated server. I've seen other systems demand sysadmin rights, and that was the only "safe" way of doing so - give them a dedicated SQL Server with a dedicated sysadmin account.

Yes, thinking of creating a new instance for Project Server 2010. But it looks very strange and I think that it is a typo, especially when the article states that you need to check dbcreator/securityadmin along with sysadmin. It doesn't make sense.
