It's twofold. One might need disconnected operations, in that you log
in as a user found in an LDAP directory. It can probably be discussed
wether you should be allowed to log in as that user if you pull your
network plug ;),  or that everything should continue to work if you pull
it after you already logged in.

The other thing is wether to log in to the box at all(to a local
account) if you configured ldap/kerberos/etc. in system-config-auth
Currently you cannot, which is very bad. Last I looked at it, it's just
a matter of changing some "required" to "suffcient" or similar in 
/etc/pam.d/system-auth
