I totally agree, I'm just saying that if the actual Kerberos client is
sitting on a web server, and the user is sending his password in the clear
or best case over TLS, that isn't Kerberos in any meaningful way I can see
for the purposes of an access control decision at the service end.

Preauth doesn't even factor into it because I can't even see calling it

Certainly I think authn context captures these distinctions, but the old
method URI alone doesn't.

I guess I thought there was some agreement on that, but if this is still a
minority (or unique) position, the group can decide.
