Late reply I know....

This is more a limitation of the session setup requirements.  The 
authentication is done prior to the tcon&X so you've already got 
the user credentials.  The best option here I think is just setup
a 'guest' server (everyone gets mapped to guest) and store you're
dfs shares on that.  You can use a virtual server for this.
