Yes, that is a good feature to have, but it will not solve all  
problems. For one thing, it won't work for all authentication styles,  

But, when I as domain coordinator am really in trouble is when  
somebody uploads a course with the wrong authentication type.  
Probably three times or so, I had instructors upload a whole  
classlist with "Kerberos" instead of "Internal" - why they would  
choose that is beyond me, but the above feature would not work in  
this case.
