Thank you for the answers. 

Well, the decision was taken after almost three months of discutions, 
followed by a regular voting poll (the same used to choose official policies). 

The option that requires a 45-day-old account to move page was clearly the will of majority.

If the decision is way to restrictive according to the Foundation, 
we'll have to choose the best option available.

Well, that's it. Thank you in advance

In my opinion, but of course i can not speak in any way for the foundation,
this is not an issue that is up to the foundation. The local community knows
best what they need, and I guess that if they find a developer that wants to
implement this, they can just ask him (her) to do it. I see no need to
discuss it all over here :-) It would perhaps be something different if you
prohibit editing for unregistered users etc maybe :-)
