I would think that the destination kdc should be able to enforce a
trusted path policy globally for the realm it serves and not issue
tickets for those requests that don't conform to that policy.  Of course
an application server should have the option to do it's own checking in
the circumstance that it's policy is more strict than the kdc's.
