As it stands, the username of a SEP Account is in no way linked to the AD account which provides the authentication.

To illustrate, you could create a SEP Admin account called "Tony" and link it to an AD account for "Simon" on the ACME domain.  The to log in, you'd have to put "Tony" in the username field of the SEPM Console, but the AD password of the ACME\Simon account.

As such, you can pretty much put whatever you like as the SEP Account's username, including "" if you wanted to.
