make it a write-in field, collect data for a few business cycles (weeks?
months?), and only then make an attempt to match the write-in contents to
existing customers

the quality of the data will, i can assure you, be an eye-opening experience

I've changed my mind now.
What I'll do is each current user a unique URL (generated from their current
UserID) where they can send people they refer to join. That way each
referrer is automatically recorded so the user doesn't need to type

Is this a better approach?
