I think that's ok personally, since if you upgrade to virtual domains you're 
starting with everyone in the default domain anyway, it's up to you as the 
administrator to start "fixing" things by renaming people into the right 
domains, and fixing their appropriate ACL's as well...

If it's just an issue of administrators having to define what they mean by 
anyone/anonymous, rather than an implementation one, I think it would be 
good to do the implementation, and then let administrators decide if they 
want to enable the ability or not...
