Long story short:

Is it appropriate to change
  self.REQUEST.AUTHENTICATED_USER.name
to
  self.REQUEST.REMOTE_USER
?


Using AUTHENTICATED_USER isn't recommended (since ages). You should always
use the SecurityManager API:

from AccessControl import getSecurityManager

user = getSecurityManager().getUser()
username = user.getUserName()

Changing request parameters as a workaround for stinking code is
unlikely a good choice. Better fix the related code instead of messing
up the REQUEST.
