You know something about their standards compliance as "a fact"
because there was a little name calling between competing vendors? Please,
that's even worse logic than what you're attacking.

As I recall, the problem with MS's kerberos implementation wasn't
it's use of the optional header field, but that it doesn't work with
systems that don't include that *optional* field. In which case it would
*not* be compliant because it would be *requiring* an *optional*
field. Correct me if I'm wrong, as I don't pretend to be an expert on
kerberos or MS.

Do I even need to comment on how faulty that logic is??
