To clarify, the OP couched this issue in terms of HTTP Basic Authentication, but it’s broader than that.  The same question would apply if you used, say, Microsoft’s SSPI mechanism to allow single-sign-on to your web app:


Once the user is logged in, you still need the user name provided by the browser to tag database records for ownership by that user, to look up prior actions by that user, etc.
