Frank, on the surface the answer to your question is yes. When adding a new person you "could" change the ID number to one which is not being used.

BUT in the long run this is a action that makes more work. The ID number is just a number for the program to keep track of people. Many of us have had the same idea long ago but found how much work it became.
