But how are the clients managing these multiple identities?  Other than
the Mac (and as it was pointed out, Reflection), you can't have multiple
identities at the same time.

In my experience, in the V5 world the service name determines the realm,
but that doesn't affect the client principal chosen (because generally
programs pick the "primary" principal out of the credential cache, and
there is only one of them).
