Re: Identity API v3 - Why allow multi-tenant users?

One of the major complication I see in the API is that users can be associated with multiple tenants.

What is the benefit of this? What functionality would be lost if a human user merely had to use a different account with each tenant?

There are numerous issues with multi-tenant users. For example, if a user is associated with multiple tenants, who resets the user's password?
