I've rephrased this bug to be more explicit in its request.

I am not a sure whether this change is wanted, it might be intentional that
edit protection also prevents moving. I'm not sure, but either way this doesn't
look like a mistake, this would be a proper change away from a past decision.

I don't know what the rationale for it was, but considering moving a page is
generally considered more harmful than simply editing it. Firtstly, it causes a
history entry, changes its URL adn watchlist entry. Secondly, moving can be
worked around by copying and pasting the page contents and turning it into a
redirect manually.
