No the space used in idmap for a user mapping is ridiculously small if
you don't have removed ~ 10 000 users it's not worth to worry about

Yeah it could be file an request in bugzilla explaining this, it's an
enhancement and I think it has a pretty low priority.
In the same time you should ask also for an expunge command so that if
you removed the user/group from ADCU we could remove all inactive groups.
But that's very very very low priority to me but should be rather easy
