I believe this is partly due to the changes IS lately did related to
accounts; I believe you now can get a user ID without linking a
Launchpad account with your Ubuntu SSO account. (This is intended and
preferred, FWIW.)

This simply means creating the Ubuntu SSO account creation needs to be
secure in addition to creating a Launchpad account.
