Ideally it may be nice to have temp storage (for registered but
unconfirmed users) as a separate plug-in from the back-end storage.
For instance, if someone wants Profile.X as their back-end storage
they may not want lots of unused Profile.X pages for people that don't
every get far enough to verify/confirm their registration...  That
would also simplify (albeit slightly) the job of writing the back-end
storage plug-in.
