I agree. I'm also confused about this.

Conditions

 Sorry, I don't quite get this, could you clarify?  It sounds as if you
are saying a username mustn't be 'recycled', is that what you mean?  If
so, I don't see how this can be achieved with self-registration. 

There is no mechanism for stopping someone from choosing a username
which someone else may have used before, which has since been deleted
after the original owner left our institution.  The only way I can see
of doing this would be not to delete old accounts, which would mean a
constantly growing database of long-expired accounts.  And we would soon
hit the limit in some departments of personal accounts which can be
created from a self-registration account.
 
Or is that not what you mean?  Maybe this just refers to future
Federation, shibboleth etc. access, not classic Athens?

Daphne.

	Subject: [ATHENS] Change to Athens Administrators Terms and
Conditions

	To all administrators

	After careful consideration we have decided to amend the terms
and conditions of Athens usage for organisations to make explicit the
need for institutions to comply with the terms of all agreements they
enter into with service providers, including those covered by
Federations such as the UK Access Management Federation. 

	Specifically, a new paragraph will be added as section 1.1.14
under the headings

	1.     Use of Athens

	1.1   As a condition of making the Software available to you,
you agree as follows: 

	1.1.14

	to ensure that where you have contractual agreements with
service providers, or have agreed to the terms and conditions of
membership of federations (eg. UK Access Management Federation),
requiring that your Users must either have unique identifiers or be
fully traceable, then you must neither recycle nor re-use in any way
those identifiers given to Users of such services. 

		The change will be implemented to the Terms and
Conditions on 8 January 2008 and administrators will be asked to agree
to this change when logging in to their Administration area.
