OK, so what are my options here, given that the ceph project still needs
a fixed UID/GID for the ceph user and group?

1) We (openSUSE) can follow Debian's reserved 60-64K range (which also
is the proposed LSB solution is to this problem, as Ludwig mentioned
before in
https://github.com/LinuxStandardBase/lsb/blob/master/documents/wip/userNaming.txt),

Let LSB say that it will allocate numbers from 4294967293 backwards.
[4294967294 is already given to "nfsnobody"]
Define no explicit range size. (Like how heap and stack grow for
towards each other for x86 processes.) Drop the 60-64K range from
the spec.

Might be a workable solution indeed.
