We need to run an application when the bootstrapper closes. This application requires administrator privileges. In order to avoid multiple elevation prompts it would be helpful to have a method in the bootstrapper engine which is capable of executing an elevated process. (E.g: Engine.RunElevated(fileName, arguments));

I think a better solution would be to allow Burn to be built with a manifest that required elevation. Then the prompt is done once at the beginning and never has to be done again.

This covers the case of running a config tool at the end of the chain. It won't be letting the BA run elevated.
