Nope, principals have own unique set of ids, but each principal object
represent a group, user or another object (in theory, for example once
I wanted to implement networks based ACLs using this feature, however
lost fun). All these objects (principal can represent) have id equal
to id of its principal object. It's just an coincident that all your
users have odd ids.

Best regards, Ruslan.
