Comment (by dcavins):

 Thanks for your feedback, Boone. Yes, it would be much simpler to not
 change the actual registration process, so let's start there.

 One question I have about your flow (which mostly matches what I was
 imagining, probably because I've used Invite Anyone for a long time), is
 that you say:

 When we detect key=12345 on the register page, we check for a matching
 signup, and perhaps pre-fill some of the info, like email.

 This makes it sound like when a user invites a new member, a bare record
 is created in the `wp_signups` table. Is this what you were intending? I
 was imagining that an invitation would be created, and the `wp_signup`
 would be created when the user responded (and the various hooks around
 signup would be fired then, rather than at invitation). In your scenario,
 when a user "registered" they'd be updating an existing signup, but as far
 as most plugins were concerned, it would be a registration.

 It's an interesting approach, and I'll think more about how we can
 interact with the `wp_signups` table as part of an invitations/request
 process and still keep the existing important hooks around registration
