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?
