Portal Installation using Local Account or Domain Account ?

When you install SAP Netweaver Portal 6.0, we need to chose if we want to use local account or a domain account for installation.

Does anybody have idea about what is the difference between the two and if I already have an installation using Local account, can I upgrade it to Domain account ?

ps: I have posted two questions together and I will award points for both the answers

To my understanding Local Account means configuring a SAPService user on Windows Portal Server itself and Domain account means configuring SAPService user on a Centralized Enteprise Identity Management System like Active Directory . This actually provides more Security.

However, what you chose is mostly controlled by the Organization Security Policy.
