Creating Communities

Is there a reason why code to create an account AS a community, instead of creating an account then converting it to a community has never been implemented? The code to do this seems rather trivial, and I am wondering if there are technical reasons this has never been done, or are the reasons simply political?

If there are no "political" reasons that this has not been done, I will happily write this code.

On my site I have been considering doing this in such a way that accounts created as communities cannot be converted to/from community status, but those that were converted(/community/create.bml) will still have that ability.

Global Communities

Anyone know the code required so that all new users join selected communities when their accounts are created, and so that if a new community is created, current users are automatically given access to it?
