NIST 800-53 AC-10 Concurrent Session Control applies to the same user running multiple sessions on the same computer. It does not address concurrent sessions by single users via multiple system accounts (admin, non-admin, guest). Therefore, I'm not sure there's a basis for turning this off other than site preference. I would imagine linux systems use this feature all the time and allowing admins on AD-controlled systems to logon with an admin user while a normal user is already logged on appears to perform the same thing FUS does.
