Hello, as said in the page in question 
it does already apply to the big wikiprojects.
Since this is affecting majorly small wikis without large communities or 
even sysops Your solutions like protecting a page or requesting it at 
bugzilla are impossible. Therefore there is a bugreport but for all 
(small) wikis, because the page move is disabled for IPs and it does not 
make much sense if not also for _new_ registered users

Please look at the links in the bugreport, thanks.

Best regards,
Elisabeth Anderl (aka spacebirdy)
