I really don't see a problem. Is this implementation-dependent issue?
99% you are operating within "current domain" and do not need to specify
domain prefix at all.
I know I only ever had to specify domain prefix, when logging to the RPC pipe
of a domain server from a standalone station. And that was only because
Windows break login sequence while there's no account with same login/password
in local SAM.
When I'm already on a domain system, I just specify a username without a
prefix and go forth.
