This is one of the older ideas that's been drifting
around WP for years.
Trouble is, we don't have the developers to work on this problem. This isn't
like policy; we can't be bold and write it. Oh, technically we can, except
most of us lack the technical prowess to do it, and those who have it are
already working on MediaWiki.
Can anyone point to a discussion on Bugzilla, I'd like to know what
the technical problem is. Superficially the autoconfirm code would
seem to me to do much the same job, so I'd be interested to see why
it's hard to, as it were, manually un-autoconfirm specified
addresses and accounts.
