As these SIDs are wellknown, and aren't going to
change (only expand as Microsoft adds more), can't
we just cut out a fixed area of say 500 id's and
have hardcoded mappings for these ?

If that range has already been used in someone's
config, we refuse to start, and provide a mechanism
for them to remap.

A bit dramatic, but very simple.
