Our consortium has asked for this as well. We have had subsequent
discussions with the community.
With the idea of leaving the patrons in pending.
I know it's been brought up a few times but I am unable to turn up the
conversations at the moment. The issue that keeps coming out of the
discussions is security. Especially if there is some automatic mechanism
to move the pending patrons to actor.usr. What's to stop the malicious
patron from racking up a bad account, then creating a new one and
It's worth discussing on Launchpad though, to at least document it!

Looking at the existing patron self-registration feature, that just
creates pending accounts for staff to verify, etc.
Is anybody else considering/interested in online registration for
online access use? I'd create a wishlist, but am also be interested in
finding potential funding partners.
