?! But if the local workstation have to access a file on a share
(supposing of course the worst case of a POSIX ACL share), how can do
that without a UID?

I've not used kerberos map, but still seems to me that you ''suppose''
that the local workstation SYSTEM user have to access a share in some
''privileged'' form.
No, i (we?) simply need to access to the share in non-anonymous form.

This can be useful in some ways, think about some initialization script
(GPO?!) that save a semaphore or status file somewhare.
