That's a very good analogy.

Both sudo and elevation let you do things you normally are not allowed to.
Sudo does this by temparily impersonating another account (e.g. root), while elevation gives you access to privileges that are in your own acccount, though normally not available.

In practice, I'd prefer if Microsoft had just implemented sudo - makes it easier to understand for me :)
