My knowledge on this is limited, but off the top of my head, I would say no, you can't create an account through this method. As you said, Shibboleth is just about authentication. You could setup a link to the separate online registration, and have it in a category that would authenticate right off the bat, but people might abuse that. There should be a staff member that moderates registrations...until Koha can do it on it's own. That is not likely to happen if multiple accounts can use the same e-mail address.
Hope this helps.

We are trying to implement Shibboleth with Koha. As far as I understand
Shibboleth is just about authentication (allowing users to sign in using
just one identity to various systems).
Now the library (that doesn't want to link Koha to LDAP directly)
suggests that Koha should create a user the first time when that user
logs into Koha through Shibboleth resp. the single sign-on IDP. The SSO
IDP is using underlying LDAP to give back the "mail" and "uid"
attributes from LDAP.
Is it possible that Koha autocreates new users this way?
I couldn't really find the answer to this or the way to go in

again I am trying to implement Shibboleth in Koha the very first time...
