The docs say they do this to try and avoid clashes with other organisations in
case of a merger.
Another reason I can see is possibly Shiboleth (Federation) which I/we have to
do. So is changing it that much of an issue?

Subject: [Freeipa-users] Change UID range
After installing, I’ve noticed that my UIDs for freeipa start at 1.3 billion.
Now, this isn’t technically a problem, but it is ... Odd. Is there a way to
change this value after install, or am I stuck uninstalling and reinstalling
with the --idstart value set to get this to a more reasonable number?
