If we don't currently verify email addresses before activating the account (i.e: allowing edits), then I think we should change the code to do that before adding any new authentication mechanisms. I think it's important that the website supports the community, and that can only happen if user messages and changeset comments actually reach the intended recipient.

As @Zverik points out, we might already be making a false assumption about the value of "guarantees" provided by large, established providers such as Google and Facebook. I think we should check our assumptions thoroughly before going any further.
