I can sort of understand the decision, you can use trusted domains with
Samba and if you use 'winbind use default domain = yes' and you have a
user in DOMA called 'fred' and a user in DOMB called 'fred', winbind
would treat these as being the same user. Even if the DOMA users full
name is 'Fred Bloggs' and the DOMB users full name is 'Fred Doe', that
is, they are two different people.

Perhaps we need a parameter called 'winbind remove our domain from
users & groups' ;-)
