consolidate the ‘register.phtml’ with the ‘new customers’ section in login or create an account page?

At ‘Login or Create an Account’ page (login.phtml), when you click on ‘Create an Account’, it brings up ‘register.phtml’ with title for ‘create an Account’. I feel that it’s more user-friendly if we can consolidate the ‘register.phtml’ with the ‘new customers’ section.

Also, in the ‘register.phtml’, there is “ <?php if($this->getShowAddressFields()): ?> “ . How likely it is for the getShowAddressFields to show up? Because there is no option to select whether to enter address information when a customer registers an account.

So with the current setup, I can’t think of the possibility that the Address Information’s section will be showing up, because a customer either enter her address from:
1)The Onepage checkout (whether she chooses to use guest checkout or not)
2) After she created an account, and logged in to ‘add a new address’.
