Installing Oracle homes when upgrading

An Oracle user asks if there is any need to install two Oracle homes in two separate users when upgrading from 9i to 10g.

While upgrading 9i (9.2.0.4) to 10g (10.2.0.1), is there any need to install two Oracle homes in two separate users?
You must install the 9i software and the 10g software in separate ORACLE_HOME directories. But these directories can be owned by the same user. And for most sites, the same user is used for both homes.
