Microsoft does not allow local accounts when setting up a new computer or installing Windows anymore. Guess it started last year. You are now required to setup a Microsoft account. But - You can bypass it by disconnecting your internet service whether it be wifi or cable and it will let you skip the account setup.
But they do allow it. As you noted, just make sure you are not connected to the Internet and the install will continue with a local account. No problem.
