It's been a while since I did Windows administration, so I can't really
make a recommendation here ... BUT:

If an admin can lock out an account (separately from disabling it
entirely), say, by setting an initial password, checking the "user must
change password on first login", and also checking "user is not allowed
to change password" simultaneously (if that's possible), or, say, by
just setting a random password without telling it to anyone ever,
followed by firing so many login attempts at the account that it gets
locked out, then telling them apart and treating locked out accounts
differently would make sense, IMO.
