"Unconditionally" seems like a strange wording choice here. It's behind the
$wgMiserMode configuration variable now, as far as I can tell. That's not
unconditional, that's the opposite. By default, $wgMiserMode is false, so any
small wiki will presumably be completely unaffected by this change, I think. Am
I misunderstanding or mistaken?

Wikimedia wikis are affected because all Wikimedia wikis set $wgMiserMode to
true, regardless of wiki size. A bit of searching reminded me of bug 46098, of

There should be a bug about making Special:ActiveUsers efficient enough
(similar to bug 10593). There should also be a bug about ultimately killing
$wgMiserMode. I consider it a hack. I don't think we should encourage
second-class features. We should either support the features fully in core,
kill them, or put them into an extension.

I'm not sure either of these bugs exist yet.
