Chris McDonough did most of that for Zope 2.7 already a long long  
time ago. There might be cleanups needed here and there, but for all  
practical purposes the separation exists and works. The standard user  
folder implementation doesn't support it AFAIK. Where specifically do  
you see it not work?

I've been using it for the LDAPUserFolder for ages where you can  
specify different attributes for the ID and the login, and change the  
login value at will. And, like Tino mentioned, PAS uses it as well.
