/var/cpanel/users - does OWNER need to be valid?

    Suppose I did the following:

    1) Create a root-owned account through WHM with the username 'example'
    2) Opened /var/cpanel/users/example
    3) Changed the line 'OWNER=root' to 'OWNER=newowner'

    If the new owner I choose is not an account username, let alone a reseller account username, might this cause any problems that anyone knows of?

    I'd like to be able to set account owners for billing purposes and would like to set them as something I choose, regardless of whether the owner username I choose exists or not (most likely it never will).

    It doesn't matter too much if the owner value can't be set as such, but it would be nice!
