Can you explain why this matters.  Are you limited certain domains to a 
particular interface for security reasons?  I assumed that byaddr is 
just a convenience for the users.

How do you propose to handle admins, especially the global admin? 
Jure's proposal seems to make the most sense to me at this point (admins 
  use fully qualified userids)
