[Mediawiki-l] User Permissions and defaults

Hey all,

So the default $wgGroupPermissions (
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:User_rights#Defaults ) have the standard
things for users like reading and editing etc...... and the sysop rights
like accountcreation etc....

But do you have to specifically state that ['user']['protect'], and some of
the other more 'sysop'-warranted operations be = false for users?  I just
realized that run-of-the-mill users can protect pages, and do patrolling,
but I'm not sure I want to do that -- so I guess I have to specifically set
user patrol and protect to false eh?
Because maybe for users there's more than move/edit/read/upload for default?

Ideas appreciated,
