There is no security issue per se, host/ principals can get tickets just
fine but we do not attach a PAC here, and AD may refuse to operate w/o a
MS-PAC. Please open a RFE if this is breaking operations. We'll need to
decide how to assign a SID to hosts but that's the only "security" issue
that needs to be solved.

Simo.
