No, please don't.  It is not necessary.

For you personally, maybe.  For the NetBSD project as a whole, not so
sure.  To me it sounds like what you are proposing will result in
having to "fix up" all sorts of third party applications to use the
auth framework whereas going for something that is more broadly
supported means we, the NetBSD people, can put our minds to solving
other problems.
