> Doesn't MediaWiki allow access control per namespace?

By default, no. There are various extensions which try and do that
kind of stuff, but they are of only limited effectiveness. MediaWiki
wasn't designed with such restrictions in mind, so most restrictions
can be got around if you try hard enough, as I understand it.
