 I'm not sure I like the idea either.  It starts going a bit crazy when you
 look at what modules can actually do for auth...
 What could be useful is a group field to complement the user field.
 Users and groups are a reasonably generic concept in many auth modules, so
 setting the group they were found in could be useful and is something that
 people do ask for a lot.
