Edward, my understanding of this feature is that you have to provide a user name in any case. Maybe I'm misinterpreting the documentation for Windows Authentication. It only mentiones Active Directory as part of specifying a domain name with the user name:

Windows authentication always works for connections from the same computer on which the server is running. For cross-computer connections, both computers must be registered with Windows Active Directory. If they are in the same Windows domain, it is unnecessary to specify a domain name. It is also possible to permit connections from a different domain, as in this example:

CREATE USER sql_accounting
IDENTIFIED WITH authentication_windows
AS 'SomeDomain\\Accounting';

If you believe this is not the complete truth then create a bug report in our bug system, so that we can investigate what is missing.
