Regarding your response on changing user IDs when people remarry, divorce, etc., apparently you don't worry about the headaches caused for help desks if you don't change the user ID. Our installation assigns user IDs based on names and if they change, we change the user IDs. Troubleshooting for us and our help desk would become a nightmare if the user ID no longer coincided with the person's legal name.
Seems like it would be a nightmare to switch the user IDs of an already established user. Think of the help desk calls when something you've been typing in daily for years changes!
