Tom.

Where would a good place to discuss this be? On this ticket? Somewhere else?

Here's another potential workflow:

A new API is made for signups, but this API has keys you must request. To get a key for your application, it must adhere to some rules, such as making sure that it's clear the user is signing up to OSM (and not to the application), that the contributor terms are displayed prominently and agreed to, etc. Then that application could make signups directly via this new API.

Any of these solutions will require some development work, so maybe the problem is just finding what will work for people.
