Yes, because implementations should at least be able to advertise that the
server supports old school auth. This may be the case if I connect with a client
which doesn't understand any of the SASL mechanisms provided by the server. (Eg,
the server only supports kerberos, but my client does not).  This allows us to
provide a better migration path IMO.
