[API Doc] Improve the description of the preemptive authentication

Hi Oleg,

If I'm reading the code correctly I believe the part about being cautious when using preemptive

authentication (PA) is not warranted.  If the host name is specified when setting the credentials,
the 
credentials will only used for authentication with that host.  They will not be added when

communicating with other hosts.  The only piece of info that's missing when using PA is the
realm.  In 
particular I'm looking at HttpAuthenticator line 166.

Mike
