Comment (by shawfactor):

 I am not sure there is a problem.

 Email is publicly available information and from memory wordpress core
 already creates an account immediately on registration (before valudating
 that the users intention).

 So if there is a problem to be solved it is with core, not buddypress.

 In terms of your broader point you are mostly wrong. I'm going to write an
 article on this at some stage, but for now I'll summarise the key point.
 Extra db tables are obviously better from a technical and performance
 point of vew. But wordpress (and buddypress) is an ecosystem. The value is
 mostly in the plugins. Harmonising on some simple db tables, apis, and
 standards makes this ecosystem so much more healthy than everyone going
 their own way. Obviously there is a balancing act here but buddypress is
 already too far down they custom table route IMO.
