Recently I have set up a couple of new accounts on my phone and one thing that I found frustrating is that if I got some information incorrect and the setup can't verify credentials, it is not possible to accept the new account as partly created. The only options available is to go back and fix the information right away or to skip creation and discard all information entered. If I don't have the information readily available (i.e. I wrote down the wrong info) and I don't want to discard everything I just typed I have to leave the settings application at the create account dialog, blocking it for everything else, until I find out what I need to correct.

Since I find it tedious to enter the information multiple times I would like to have a third option where the account is added in a disabled state so that I can go back and correct the issue later.

For workaround, what if you just added some crap to the mandatory fields you don't know about and accept the dialog with that? Then come back later and edit in the correct values...

That's what not possible. If the account creation fails due to unable to sign in and verify credentials I get to choose to go back and fix it or just discard the account.
