No, the OP won't hear this from end users.  They don't even know what
Dovecot is, will have never heard of it nor "SIS".

The only folks he might take grief from is fellow sysadmins.  But why
would they care?

Also, what if at some point management forces you to dump Dovecot and
move to a platform that doesn't offer SIS?  If you change your tune with
said users now, in the future, you may have screwed yourself after
re-educating your users to the "SIS" way.
