Nowadays the question is how to register such persistent IDs in the
openSUSE world?

Yes, this is coming close to my question.
Does LSB play a role in this question ?

Good point.

http://refspecs.freestandards.org/LSB_3.2.0/LSB-Core-generic/LSB-Core-generic/tocusersgroups.html
is the most recent document I found.

Unfortunately the content is compared to the open question very vague.

And if we register ID's for openSUSE, how do we know that this ID does
not conflict with ID's in other DISTs ?

I fear nobody cares about this. You're expected to use the green, red,
or yellow Linux exclusively.

Or it doesn't matter cause the NSS mechanisms ensure everything fits
well.

Unfortunately this isn't true. SUSE uses a group named ntadmin while on
Redhat based systems it's ntadmins IIRC. Something like this causes
superfluous extra work if you try to provide feature compatible
binaries.

I'm already stop whining. It's such a nice evening. :)
