Fix JS errors from external users invite system

A vanilla CNX 6.5 installation throws JS errors:

XML Parsing Error: not well-formed
Location: https://cnx65.internal/selfservice/acl/invite
Line Number 1, Column 1:

The mentioned url returns the following JSON: {"access":false}

So something is wrong here, when your JS code expects XML and the API returns JSON.
This error occurs even after setting <pre-register enabled="true" to <pre-register enabled="false" in selfregistration-config.xml.

Having uncaught JS exceptions is bad practice and could have side-effects to other functionalities. So please fix this. When the feature is not enabled, it shouldn't make any requests to the server and the JS code should parse JSON (or the API returning XML, depending on what fits your conversation).
