That should be handled by site configuration control. Assuming that they are 
careful to keep old policy around...can it be correlated?

Auditd has no time to do any correlation. This would have to be done 
post-mortem just like uid conversion is done. I think this is an exceptional 
condition and just want to make sure we can close the loop manually if this 
ever happened.
