This is true of basic authentication, although not all authentication
methods are using basic. For example, in the past, we've used Cosign
which does provide a proper logout.
Also you can still do this with basic authentication, apparently the
trick is to dynamically change the realm sent with the WWW-Authenticate
request. I haven't looked into whether there's anything already
existing for Apache/nginx which makes this easy, though.
