Do youth need approval for an LDS account

Can seminary age youth create an LDS.org account without any kind of approval or adult interaction as long as they have their membership number?

Youth under the age of 13 need a parent's approval.

I just did this a few months ago. See this post. It only asked for a parent's MRN; I didn't have to actually log in to approve my child's LDS Account. So I suppose if a child got hold of Mom or Dad's MRN, he could sign up without Mom or Dad knowing.
