I've only implemented browser impersonation (cookies). There is no
token exchange at the moment.

If User X and User Y are in the same realm, then User X will first be
logged out (and a backchannel logout performed on all clients), then
logged in as User Y. The plan is to redirect to the Account
If User X and User Y are in different realms, then User X stays logged
in. I'm thinking that a new tab would be opened that is redirected to
Account Applications page.
