I like the sound of this.  Will branches inherit from MAIN, have their 
own default, or be separate defaulting to default:RWC as it is now?

Since Domain1\foo isn't the same as Domain2\foo and could very well be 2 
totally different people, you shouldn't assume they are the same.  When 
you say "cross-domain authentication can cause the username to change", 
do you mean they would now have the domain pre-pended to them instead of 
plain username?


Thanks for all your work on this, as usual!
