The following sentence from the Akismet docs, outlines why we create a wordpress acount for our users/authors (if they do not already have one)

WordPress.com is a hosted web service built on the popular open source blog and site creation tool available for free at WordPress.org. The service or product you’d like to use is one of the suite of products made by Automattic, the company that runs WordPress.com.

To best serve our growing number of customers across the company, we’ve determined that a unified user account system is a necessary step toward getting seamless payment and functional integration across all of our tools.
