I am currently looking at the fall back scenarios when SPNEGO is not available for some reason - at the moment the Beta releases are an all or nothing approach so require SPNEGO to always work.

I am considering the possibility of NTLM authentication which can be the default fallback mechanism selected by the web browser if SPNEGO is unavailable.  

I am also considering the options of falling back to other authentication mechanisms such as BASIC or FORM but there may be some issues as to detect a failure in SPNEGO authentication involves sending an error to the client.
