I'm worried that this is a bit of a management nightmare because the
data about the mapping does not live within the file system (it's
externally determined, static, but crucial to the interpretation of
file system content).  I expect that many organizations have
centralized allocation of user IDs, but centralized allocation of the
static mapping does not appear feasible.

Have you considered a more complex design, where untranslated nested
user IDs are store in a file attribute (or something like that)?  This
way, any existing user ID infrastructure can be carried over largely
unchanged.
