It almost seems necessary to give the tokens to the creater of a token contract all of the tokens.
For instance, in https://www.ethereum.org/token#central-mint
/* Initializes contract with initial supply tokens to the creator of the contract */
balanceOf[msg.sender] = initialSupply; // Give creator all tokens
I'm guessing the initiallySupply is later subtracted from this owner's balance, but why do this step at all? Why not just create the
initialSupply and leave it there?
