It's accepted that it causes the mechanism to use some reasonable
name.  So for our mechanism I think the only reasonable choice for
initiators is the ticket you have.

OUr behavior for acceptors is incredibly useful--use whatever name is
provided in the ticket--but is perhaps somewhat non-standard.  I
believe Solaris is implementing that behavior.
