"We" being the Wikipedia editors? Are they aware about this possibility? I
think it would be good to contact the big communities (tech-ambassadors?) and
get them involved just in case. For reference, the Commons community wasn't
happy at all about mobile uploads being "simply enabled", and image uploading
on desktop was a feature existing in desktop just like page creation. 

While uploading good pictures from you mobile device is perfectly possible,
creating good articles from scratch from your mobile device is objectively a
complex task. I personally agree that a plan a bit more elaborated needs to be
in place: templates looking good on mobile, new articles assigned to a specific
category automatically? in a specific namespace other than Main?

While not extremely complex, all this doesn't sound to me "EASY" as to
recommend newcomers to pick this task. I would remove the tag.

Sounds like a good idea, as long as the wiki has a Drafts namespace or
equivalent. I guess this means that MobileFrontend should have a parameter to
define the namespace where new mobile articles are created, defaulting to Main.
