Hi Ryan

This is most like done for compatibility reasons or no reason at all.
The RFC, however, has this passage:
--- 
The Hypertext Transport Protocol (HTTP) auth-scheme of
   "negotiate" is defined here; 
---

which seems suggest that there may be different interpretations. At the
same time AuthSchemas#SPNEGO is just a constant. We could change its
value in a feature release.
