Tim asked me to add why you would need a log of account creations. Some wikis
like to know when new accounts are added so that they can welcome the accounts.
Other people monitor new accounts (just as they do edits) to ensure that people
aren't creating (sleeper) spam, vandalism, or attack accounts.

Speaking generally, this feature seems to be the wrong way to solve the
underlying problem. The underlying problem seems to largely be an issue of bad
account names being logged on other wikis. Global user rename or global
username suppression are the answers to that kind of problem, not turning off
the log.
