Well, the only real advantage (for me) for a global admin is that I have 
one account I use from my server side web scripts to manage all of the 
accounts. I can handle the per domain permissions and stuff like that 
outside of cyrus and just use the global administrative account as the 
backend access for my web scripts.

I actually personally don't care what username I use to get it, but I 
don't think it should go missing. It just feels a little confusing and 
unclear why things are tied together the way they are.

Let he who is without clue kiss my ass
