It's not that simple, you can't just do authentication as though it's limited to one set of SPs, at least unless all of your use cases are library-centric.

The IPAddress login flow comes with the software. If that were accompanied, I suppose, with some pretty deliberate work around which account(s) the system impersonated and additional work with, say, the context-check interceptor to ensure access to other SPs was blocked appropriately, it's probably feasible. It's certainly fragile and prone to accidents that could lead to some ugly results.

I don't know what you think that means in this context, but that's not a term I can attach any precise meaning to and be sure I'm talking about the same thing you are.
