I think the purpose of "multitenant" is to support multiple tenants :-)
  It's not clear to me that you can't do this multi-tenant billing /
reporting with what we have today - without changing the URL, we know the
user-id today (with our 'stub' auth).  We'll likely know _more_ when
"real-auth" lands.

Can you explain what the proposed patch actually achieves?

I think maybe the problem is that the patches are "in the wrong order" - I'm
guessing you have a billing/reporting solution and know that this is
required, but you haven't contributed it yet.  Without that, we can't see
the reason why you were motivated to make this change.  (This out-of-order
patching is something I'm very guilty of as well!)
