Ok, I'll try to explain myself a bit better.

I'm migrating a repository from SVN source server A to SVN target server B.
SVN server A has account U for user U, while user U's account is named T on
server B.
SVN server A has accounts that are not present on server B.
Target server B is centrally managed and the user management policy
prevents creating all the accounts found on source server A.

For these reasons I assumed I would need to modify the source repository
history so that commits made by user U would be attributed to account T
before loading the repository data into server B.

Am I making false assumptions here?
