  • There are 3rd party web parts that can provision accounts in active directory.  A service account with access to create users in Active Directory is required, so if configured on a SharePoint site that supports Anonymous access it may be possible.  With that said, I am not sure I can think of a set of requirements where I would agree that it is a good idea for anonymous users to create AD accounts.  Typically if you need to support ad-hoc, unmanaged users, you use Forms Based Authentication.
