c) TGS referrals - the scenario is that you want to remove extensive 
realm binding information from the client configuration. This means 
that a TGS request to a realm that does not have that service can 
return a referral to a "closer" realm. The change is that instead of 
a server returning a service principal unknown error, it will return 
(unsolicited) cross-realm ticket to a "closer" realm. This saves the 
client from having to know the realm of the server beforehand. It 
was agreed that this is very useful and should be part of kerberos-
