I think a carefully placed hack will fix the Authoritative stuff. :-)

For example, have mod_auth_basic define the directive, and have it alter its
dispatch to the different authn backends. You can certainly deprecate the
directive, but I bet it can end up working okay.

At this level, it is policy, so majority wins. When you check in code that
breaks the system, then a technical veto can arise. So you could always
state that this is advisory only :-)
