I almost said "KDC bug", actually. :)

As of MIT krb5 1.11, there are KDC knobs to control which enctypes are 
usable as session keys on a per-principal basis, independent of the 
long-term key enctypes.  I don't know of any other KDCs for which this 
sort of thing is possible, but I know almost nothing about the AD KDC, and 
as your "how to rekey" document seems to show, there can be a lot of 
complicated settings in an AD KDC!
