I know it's been brought up in #31744 but I thought it deserved it's own ticket. wp-signup.php is a bit of a mess and a massive pain to customise.

I propose we refactor some of the code by doing the following:

  • Move the functions out into wp-includes
  • Add more hooks for customisation purposes
  • Refactor PHP so it's easier to read
  • I also think it'd be a good time to look at the markup as it seems quite inconsistent on this page.

I understand that https://make.wordpress.org/core/2011/03/23/code-refactoring/ says we shouldn't refactor for the sake of it, but I feel this would be for the good or WordPress multisite in the long run as this page really is a massive pain.
