 If this had a patch on it I would consider it for 3.2

 Without a patch I am not going to prioritise working on it for now.

 I think we need to review all calls to wp_insert_user in core and set the
 role arg to the value of {{{get_option('default_role'))}}} when

 Then we can remove:

         elseif ( !$update )

 From the function itself.
