The authz-data is populated by the DC in the service tickets in the  
cross-realm case.  That's why you need to buy a license based on the  
number of non-Windows Kerberos entries.  (No, there's no authz-data  
in the original tgt, or the cross-realm tgt, but the service never  
sees those.)

In the Samba 4 case I believe they have implemented extensions for  
the authz-data in their version of Heimdal.
