imo -1. Part of the benefit of the process being manual is that a little
sanity checking is applied.

if someone needs hosting RIGHT NOW, then they can use their fedorapeople
account for the hour or two it'll take for someone from fedora
infrastructure to get to it.

Making it instantaneous and automatic just makes it prone to abuse.
