no, either you assign them sensible usernames, or you make their Cyrus
account name equal to their (primary) e-mail address.

I think it is impossible to make your request work since SASL doesn't
cater for returning a username which is different from the
authentication user.  in other words, Cyrus IMAPD would need to add
support for looking up such mappings in LDAP, PostgreSQL etc. etc.,
which is unneeded today since Cyrus SASL handles all of that.
