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?
