I am not sure this is a problem: we want uploads from people who signed 
the CLA, and having a FAS account is pretty much a CLA confirmation.

Also, someone with a FAS account can take an image with the right 
license (CC-BY) from other source and post it while crediting the 
original author.

After all, we need the submitters to have an account *somewhere*, as a 
confirmation of their identity (CLA, CC-BY), so better have this in our 
court instead of relying on a closed 3-rd party (which is now in 
business with our main competitor, Microsoft).
