"Accurate" it may or may not be, but it's not correct :->

The lifetime of an authentication is dependent on the login method used.  For 
example, for form-based login you are authenticated through the duration of the 
current session.  Therefore, a 403 is the right answer -- if the user should be 
able to access both sets of protected resources, he or she should be granted 
both roles in the first place.

JSR 115 or 154 may or may not change this for the future (although I doubt it 
from the discussions so far).
