I think if we start adding a list of other ways a connection could be 
authenticated externally, readers could assume, that they are the only 
allowed usecases of EXTERNAL.

(BTW: I do not understand what you mean with "I'd hate to see different 
uses of the authorization identity". What do you mean with these 
different uses? If present an authorization identity is always a JID, 
that's how I read RFC 4422, 3.4.1, 3rd paragraph.)
