createemailregexp is the parameter that deals with the option "Allow Self-registration", which allows users to create their own account.

You know that it's in the "user authentication" part, but, createemailregexp really doesn't let you ring a bell - if you are searching only for allowing self-registration or not.

Documentation is ok, but I just would suggest to change the name of the parameter.

Maybe this will become related with bug 387531.

createemailregexp is more than that. Not only you can disable self-registration, but it can also restrict who can self-register, using something between "" (self-registration disabled) and ".*" (everybody can self-register), e.g. "\@bugzilla\.org$" (restricting to @bugzilla.org users only). So this name is fine to me.
