autocreatepeer still requires registration, from sip.conf.sample:

;autocreatepeer=no             ; Allow any UAC not explicitly defined to register
                               ; WITHOUT AUTHENTICATION. Enabling this options poses a high
                               ; potential security risk and should be avoided unless the
                               ; server is behind a trusted firewall.
                               ; If set to "yes", then peers created in this fashion
                               ; are purged during SIP reloads.
                               ; When set to "persist", the peers created in this fashion
                               ; are not purged during SIP reloads.

Isn't there also autocreatepeer?
