Windows 8.1 Enterprise - Microsoft App Store?

I am doing some testing prior to deploying some "Windows 8.1 Enterprise" test machines in our environment.

One small hick up I've run into is that since we are joined to a domain, and logged in as a domain user, not a "Microsoft Account", we cant download or purchase Apps using our company UPN (email address).

How can a user (me) download apps from the app store without signing in with a Microsoft Account?

Do we have to get users to register their name@companydomain.com addresses with Microsoft somehow?

If I understand it right, this should be possible without issues after you "link" a microsoft account to your domain account.
