Comment (by r-a-y):

 Now that I've had more time to think about it, I actually think this is
 more of a multisite upstream issue.  See #WP18025, #WP38526 for some
 examples.  Note that for the latter ticket, in the WP REST API, WP has
 decided to add a role for a multisite user.

 However, they use `add_user_to_blog()`, which is probably a better option
 for multisite rather than `$member->set_role( get_option( 'default_role' )
 );`.  We should probably do what WP does for multisite if we decide to go
 forward with this patch.

 I guess the question is do we create a ticket upstream to get some
 feedback or do we impose what we think is correct, even though this might
 affect existing sites?

 bbPress works about the same as what we are proposing, however it adds its
 own role while we would be adding the WP default role of `subscriber`.
