Yes, but why authenticate with NTDoman FOO unless you are going to use
services available in NTDomain FOO?  If you operate in one workgroup and
authenticate in a separate NTDomain, then your authentication buys you

If you do peer-to-peer within a workgroup and also use services within 
the NTDomain, then I suppose this makes some sort of sense.  Still, it's 
a bit awkward.
