The latter. I think everyone agrees that it makes sense, but I don't know
that Liberty has defined any specific classes or statements that deal with

Right. My criticism pertained to the old method. However, I would be equally
opposed to lumping this model into a general Kerberos context class. I think
it's closer to a "password" class with specific details provided as to how
the server is checking the password for accuracy that mention Kerberos.
