      Description

      credentials for repositories are identified based on arbitrary ID. This is error prone and fragile design, especially as there's no way to diagnose which credentials are used (see MNG-5584).

      A realm-based server matching would better follow the way HTTP security is defined, and could be easily used for other protocols based (for sample) on domain name.

      <server>
           <id>xxx</id>  
           <realm>[optional protocol://]repo.acme.com</realm>
          ..
      </server>
