Well, we already have one account of this type, called 'root'. But
it's not in the UI and can only be a top-level account.
Adding new account types is... challenging... Mostly it's a
problem because of backwards compatibility.. You need to make sure
that you add the logic for the new account well before you add the
code to support using it.
