Well, there is a way around this:

As long as each domain has it's own ip-adress, you can set up multiple
instances of imapd with different config files and thus different
auth-configurations using the -C configurationparameter in cyrus.conf.

localimap cmd="imapd -C /etc/imapd.conf.local" listen=localhost:imap

This is what I use to provide plaintextlogins for webmail while
demanding tls or digest-md5 for everyone else.
