It is possible but that is not the problem.  The algorithm for

SIDs are never reused on Windows.  File ownership is really
irrelevant.   so while it is possible to exhaust the uid/gid
on space on a linux box with 32-bit ids, it is rarely done
using as single domain.  It is more possible using noe or
more trusted domains.
