So your UI can decouple the email and password asking, but both will be required to create a new user account. If you don't want that behaviour, then you can hack this by generating a fake password for a user, creating a user, and then later when you ask the user for their actual password, you can change that fake password using the functions we expose via our node SDK. That being said, I suggest that you don't do this anyway cause what if the user logs out before you get their actual password.. then they would have to go through the reset password flow which can be annoying for them.
