Translating user names during transfer.

Is there a way to translate file ownership during transfer. For example, can it 
be done such that all files owned by user1 end up being owned by user2, and all 
files owned by user3 end up being owned by user4. The actual problem we're 
trying to solve is that some, but not all, users don't exist on the target 
system so we'd like the ownership for users which do exist to remain but to 
have a default owner (or, even better, set of owners) for the rest.
