An administrator might decide to enable one of these accounts, but I'd
say that would be pretty unwise.  Maybe if your computer is absolutely
never attached to a network :-)

The only other things I can think of:

- Could there be the odd file that is owned by one of these users?
  (Likely a bug I would think ...)

- It's required by some standard like POSIX or FHS.  My google-fu
  turns up nothing right now, but I could have missed something.

virt-p2v converts physical machines to virtual machines.  Boot with a
live CD or over the network (PXE) and turn machines into Xen guests.
