What if we have two domains on the same network? (We really did for some
time) As I understand, SAMLOGON is a broadcast. We definitely do not want to
serve foreign domain, do we? So we need SID to decide, if we answer this
request ... and for fully paranoid, we need to check, if trust account
exists :-)
