Fine, but if you add userid (converted to lower/upper case to avoid server mismatches) to the hash they would need a dictionary for each user at that site.  ...or at a minimum, they would have to discover the userid for the victim.

Yes.  I'm thinking that the kitten site would only be able to compute
hashes with domain = "kittens.com" (or maybe "anything.kittens.com")
and not, say, "whitehouse.gov".
