It is not unusual to have a user who needs to impersonate another user without having that user's password.

For example,

- a secretary may need to REGISTER to receive calls for somebody

- a named user (e.g. bob@example.org) may need to make a call using some role identity (e.g. From: support@example.org)

The CommonNameMappings feature for TLS partially addresses this requirement.  However, a more unified approach, not specific to TLS, may be better.
