[CentOS-mirror] rsync file ownership

I'm in process of putting together a public mirror and noticed the ownership on my files seem to keep swapping between uid/gid 502, 503 and I think I've seen 500 as well.  The mirror howto suggests using rsync with -aqzH, which of course is going to retain the permissions of the synced files.  Do others just put up with the ownership changes or are they splitting up the -a option into only some of its parts?
