Non Registrar-Sponsored Accounts

Files under the directory
/software/accounts-master/data/sponsors/ but outside of the directory
/software/accounts-master/data/sponsors/REGISTRAR/ are maintained strictly manually.

Unlike Registrar Sponsored Accounts there is no automatic population of files with information about users matching certain class characteristics.

At least for now. Nothing absolutely precludes the creation of some other mechanism to automatically or semi-automatically populate portions of this heirarchy.
