Tramp would use it for finding the password via auth-source.el. But if
somebody configures auth-sources accordingly, she could also add a rule
to tramp-default-user-alist.

The question is, whether there is additional benefit, using such a
default as Tramp builtin. If it is not common, that the Windows user
name is the same as the *nix/*nux user name, we could refrain from
setting such a default.

Best regards, Michael.
