Comment (by r-a-y):

 > i've realized that at least on multisite WordPress was displaying the
 wp-signup page even If signups were not allowed. And we are actually
 redirecting this page to the register page id If it exists and defaults to
 an arbitrary slug "register" which leads in this case to a 404.

 Good catch, imath.

 Forgot about the wp-signup.php redirect to `/register/`.  Is there a valid
 reason why we do this redirect?  I just disabled registration on a
 multisite install and removed the wp-signup.php redirect and wp-signup.php
 shows a "Registration has been disabled" message.  I think this is good

 > There are also plugins like invite anyone for instance that temporarly
 needs these pages to create an invited user.

 Also didn't know about Invite Anyone needing to have the Register page
 even when registration is disabled.  I haven't tested Invite Anyone yet,
 but if this is the case, then `01.patch` cannot be considered.
