Improve registration form field validation

When registering it would be better if the form checked to see if the username typed is available live, before the user proceeds to the next field.

Similarly it would be good if other fields were validated live, such as the email address. Currently I can type anything in there and it won't give me the error until I try and submit the form.

The password field could do with improvements like this.

If you focus on a required field and then proceed to another field without completing it, you could again provide instant validation so the user gets a warning before trying to submit the form.
