Restrict access to only approved accounts?

Did this issue make progress? 

>The "Customers will only be able to check out if they have an account created for them by you." statement is actually entirely incorrect. Anyone can create a customer account, even though the option of 'Accounts are required' is selected. All the user has to do is visit the store URL '/account/register', fill in some information and press submit, and they  will be logged in automatically, giving them access to everything.

I understand the workaround of adding customer tags, or an app to auto deleted accounts/orders. Just wondering if there is a simpler option.
