I thought NFS access was via user ID.

Precisely.
And they can be faked.

The drawback of this is different
users could have the same ID on different computers. For example, I could
be user 1000 on my computer and you would be 1000 on yours. An NFS file
server sharing for ID 1000 couldn't tell the difference between me & you.

Absolutely. Users can not be remapped, to my knowledge.
