[Foundation-l] Show community consensus for Wikilove

As better explained by Erik, the deployment to en.wiki was not done with 
community consensus. The purpose of the deployment, as I understand it, 
was two-fold:
* To address one of the main reasons cited for people leaving en.wiki 
(lack of positive feedback)
* To experiment with new methods of user communication
As mentioned by Erik, the feature is still considered experimental. 
Ironically, the main thing we've learned from WikiLove is that our 
existing interface for user talk page interaction is pretty abysmal 
(judging by the large number of people using WikiLove to post simple 
questions or comments).
