They don’t map identities at all, a fact that is clear from this presentation:

They’re clearly saying that the Ubuntu world will have a completely different user set from your Windows desktop.  The inverse is clear from the fact that every native user that wants to have Ubuntu for Windows available installs their own separate copy.

This is what I meant in my previous comments about “no AD/SAM integration”.
