Why do you need commons?

As I said on IRC last night:
21 10:15:26 < jeremyb> this is not about editing
21 10:15:35 < jeremyb> this is about when people will be creating accounts

Likewise it's not about *where* people are editing/uploading. It's about where their initial account creations will be.

I prefer merging as is unless there's some unstated argument for commons that I'm missing. You can just tell people that initial registrations should be done in one of those 3 places.
