Yes. Many Debian users already have non-UPG systems and are not going to
change their enterprise-wide account provisioning in order to accomodate
UPG. Remember, the decision to use UPG in many environments is not a
per-system decision. If the users are coming from some external source
like LDAP, it's an enterprise-wide decision and the person installing
Debian may not have any choice in the matter.
