Assigning recs to inactive users - part 2

Yah, so I said last week I was gonna investigate assigning recs to inactive users.  What I know now:
  • Among standard objects:
    • Accounts, Campaigns, Email Templates, Events, Solutions, and Tasks can be assigned to inactive users.
    • Attachments, Cases, Contacts, Contracts, Documents, Leads, Notes, and Opportunities cannot.
  • Custom objects can be reassigned to inactive users.
  • The "Create Audit Fields" BlackTab permission must be activated for the org.
  • Such assigning can only be done through the API.
  • The Opportunity update error interestingly reads "Owner is inactive, cannot reparent the account [sic]"; the errors for the other objects read either read "owner is inactive, cannot reparent record" or "operation performed with inactive user".
