Not sure what to say. Your requirement is weird to say the
least. We've decided for the path of less confusion.

99% of the Plone (or 'CookieCrumbler', as this affects any user of
cookie-based authentication) users would expect to be able to log in
with a user from a user folder in the root, which *is*
backwards-compatible behavior. What you want is not
backwards-compatible behaviour IMHO, so my opinion is that you will
have to fix that yourself if you want that policy to be supported.
