So, it turns out I did register "User identity verification only".
What I'm trying to do is write a tool which can access admin-only data, such as
deleted page history, by letting a user authenticate using their enwiki credentials. I
have no need (or desire) to allow edits, just reading. I assume what I want is
"basic + viewdeleted"?
Can I generate a consumer key now, with just basic, do some testing with that, and then
upgrade to the viewdeleted grant later? Or would I just stop using the basic-only
consumer key and generate a new one that has basic + viewdeleted?
Is there such a thing as a "read-only" consumer? For what I want to do,
I'll never want my app to do any edits. It would make sense to get a read-only
consumer key, if such a thing existed.

I've got several oauth tokens that I registered for a while ago. I have the actual
tokens, but where I can I look up the details like whether I registered them as
