Do I really need one UID per computer?

When I attempt to create new computer accounts using 
"smbpasswd -a -m COMPUTER_NAME$", it insists on having 
a system account by the same name. I have lots and lots
of computers to put into the domain, and the UID space
is shared between different departments, which makes
reserving an unused UID for each computer rather 
unpopular. So my question is - is it possible, some way
or another, to avoid creating a system account for each

I am using beta 5, and I do not think I am not ready for 
the prealpha just yet :)
