Incidentally, I asked Mark why we couldn't use host-2-realm, and the
answer's just too obvious: because we are using the principal in
question as the client principal in an AS-REQ, which means we need a
keytab entry before any referrals/canonicalization could happen, which
means we need to pick a keytab entry without knowing the host's realm.
