Default What are AutoNumber Dangers

if you ever Replicate your database (which you won't if it's in
2007 or 2010, that feature has been removed),

No, that has *not* been removed. A2007 and A2010 and the ACE all
still support Jet replication, just not in ACCDB format, but only in
MDB format.

The lack of replication (and ULS) is a FILE FORMAT issue, not an
application or database engine issue.

Of course you are right. I was mixing two topics together there (came from
assuming that the autonumber is also the PK) but I think that my statement
about the potential issue still is useful.
