Most IRC users do not have a large problem with this.  However, if one
feels that they should still be cloaked before they receive their
Wikimedia-related cloak, they can request an "unaffiliated" cloak in
#freenode at any time.  (They have to set their nick up the same way
as you do to receive a Wikimedia cloak, though.)
