So what you really want is in some (unusual) cases but not all (normal
cases) to be able to send an invitation that when accepted will result
in a moderated member.

As far as a direct add is concerned, the easiest is add the member and
then set her moderated from the membership list.

I don't know if adding a 'moderate' flag to invitations is really of
general interest.
