usrmgr allows only to set the fields that were available back in the "good old"  NT4 times. If you need to modify the new fields available in Windows 200x, you have to use Active Directory Users and Computers.  No OU and GPO management in usrmgr.
Also, if you switch your domain from mixed mode to native 2000 or 2003 mode, usrmgr won't work anymore.
