The question has been answered by Tyler in my opinion. Right now, this login page that uses LDS Account is a beta testing page and not required to get into the LUWS websites. However, at some point in the future, that beta login will become the real login. When that happens, if you enter your old credentials, it will guide you through the process of getting a new LDS Account. When they switch the login to the new one, if you don't get the new LDS Account, I don't think you will be able to get in. But from what I see, the Church has created a very simple experience to guide you through obtaining a new LDS Account.
And the most wonderful part of all is that you don't have to go find your Record Number and Confirmation Data again, if you let the system guide you through obtaining an LDS Account; but again, the only way to get that is to attempt to login with your old credentials, because that's the only way the system can first verify you in the old system, migrate some of your information from the old system to the new system, and guide you through selecting a username under the new system.
