You must be mis-remembering because I just tried it and the Unix acls do 
not change, mind you I never thought they would. The windows ACLs now 
show with getfacl, so this may be what you are getting mixed up with.

As for giving all users and groups an ID number, just how far do you 
suggest an admin goes? do you suggest that all the 'well known sids' be 
given an ID ?
