An interesting use case here could be: In epiphany, I click on
irc://irc.freenode.org/telepathy . Then 3 possibilities:
a) I already have a connected account on Freenode so I just join
b) I have an account configured for Freenode but it's not connected. We
connect it and join #telepathy
c) I don't have an Freenode account already configured so we create a
"temporary" account (maybe just create a connection is enough), connect
it and join #telepathy. 

Not sure how much MC should be involved in this process though.
