When you had 1,500 users, their uids would range from 1,001 to
2,501. Not an issue.

You're making the same mistake. User-contributed content would start
at 1,001 and go up. You won't run out of space.
As I understand Dave's approach, no normal content or users go in the
id<1000 space. Only "configuration"
users/nodes/blocks/vocabularies/terms go there, things that are
created and maintained by the site developer. If you are
pre-creating nodes for every item in a library or a voc term for
every word in the dictionary, then reserve 1,000,000 ids instead of
1,000. Otherwise, what site will ever run out of room?
