Why not? 1-499 can still be local groups, as can be gids > 50000

It is if you already have users with those uids. Not everybody can start
fresh. When I started using linux and samba many years ago, the
distribution I used had 500 as the lowest uid (e.g. my uid is 500) and
it's not practical to change the ownership of the more than 3 millions
files I have.
