This would be useful for me too.

My use case is:

  1. I run a private wiki and so I mainly wish to ensure that those registering are from a list of domains.
  2. At the moment I must login to see the email address of the registrant. If it is spam, I reject and move on.
  3. If the email address was in the confirmation email I would only log on to process registrants that I wanted to create logons for.

I would be happy to do a PR for this to be the default if that was acceptable.

Not sure about including it in the emails by default, but seems sensible that it _can_ be included, and it would be easy to create a patch that allows that.

Feel free to provide such patch and ping me for review. Else, it can be a nice task for Google-Code-in-2018

@Platonides: Did you receive the email invitation to your username here at gmail, or should I send it to another email address?
