So how exactly would one account for this?

What are you trying to accomplish in your accounting? Determine your current net worth? Find out how much you are earning currently? Figure out when you have accumulated enough to retire? Determine your projected retirement income?

Any method of accounting will have some strengths and weaknesses - some ways of showing information that are more useful than others. Once you know what you want to do with your accounting, then you can determine which method makes the most sense for your purposes.
