Does a Teams meeting need to be managed?

By default, a Teams meeting will join participants as presenters.  The presenter role allows full meeting options, including locking video, recording control and ability to manage audio for others.  In some scenarios like a presentation by a Dean to staff or hosting a webinar it can be helpful to control who can manage these capabilities of other participants.
