wp_create_user throwing exceptions for empty emaild address

wp_create_user in wp-includes/registration.php (line:306) throws an exception : This email address is already registered. If no email address is provided, but the function's documentation at http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_create_user says that the email address is optional.

This used to work in 2.9.2, but is broken in 3.0 which is breaking one of my sites.

Email addresses should not be optional.
