The term "authorization identifier" is used in the standard to cover
both "user identifier" and "role name", cf. section 5.4:

 <authorization identifier> ::=
       <role name>
     | <user identifier> 

Would is perhaps be better to reserve the more generic term
"authorization identifer" to those cases when either a user or a role
meant, and rather user "user identifier" when talking about users
only?
