[CentOS-mirror] can you create problems with uid/gid?

I noticed that /CentOS/5/os was giving me a 403 forbidden error, but 
/CentOS/5.0/os/ wasn't.  I tracked the problem; the files in /5/ are 
symlinks to the files in /5.0/, but they were owned by uid 503 and the 
targets in /5.0/ were owned by uid 500.  My server is set 
SymLinksIfOwnerMatch, and if possible, I'd like to keep it that way. 
Will I introduce any problems for my consumers by changing all file 
ownership to 500?
