Subject Re: Why "list of preferred userids" ?

Basically it gives root@ an opportunity to select a different id
if the first one contains non-alphanumeric chars.

Nowadays if people look over the list of existing ids and present
just one that's unique, but "similar" to the rest of the list in terms
of charsets used, that is sufficient.
