be a big help to them; let's try to make them more effective.
If some wikis don't like it, they can opt out. (I assume. If it's not

I for one am opposed to this (as I noted on the page in question).
This is not a decision to be decided foundation-wide, but rather on a
per-project basis. Some wikis might not want to disable
non-autoconfirmed users from moving, some might. That's what bugzilla
requests for setting changes are for. Additionally, this removes some
of the pagemove protection functionalities, as it would basically
become "Can non-sysops move pages, yes/no?"
