When a account is created the user name can be adjusted silently due to
some technical restrictions, like first letter capitalized or double
spaces.

Please add a warning, so the user get a hint, that he choose a user name,
which is not usable as entered.

See gerrit 104926 for a discussion about this.
See http://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/design/2014-January/001320.html for a
discussion about this.

The patch set adds a warning after the submit of the form, which needs retype
of the password and resubmit, which is not the best way to do this.
Along to the warning it can be possible to add a api call for validation of the
username and provide ajax warnings, so the user has not to resubmit the form.
This can be reached by a dry-run parameter for API's action=accountcreation.
For non-javascript users the warning should stay.
