I think it's a good enough criteria.  If there's somebody involved that 
doesn't have an account and wants to be elected, getting an account 
isn't a very high bar.  If there's somebody *not* involved who wants to 
be elected, getting an account isn't going to change the fact that none 
of us recognize them.  Sure, it's arbitrary, but it's not terrible.
