The ubuntu one single sign on is used for many different things like say what teams you are a part of on launchpad which uses the bug tracker and who wrote this comment. I don't see an intuitive way to do this with anominity.  Also even  the free software foundation has a channel on freenode. I don't really like the idea of captchas on ubuntu one webpage I certainly don't remember them but we have had an attack of many people signing up for the single sign on and spamming the wiki with all sorts of advertisements which results in either locking it down or a not very useful wiki.
