Sure, but most users and most wikis don't want or need an extra user preference
for this. These links are automatically shown based on user permission and

Regarding gadgets specifically, a few wikis might create such a gadget, but I
doubt it. The overall MediaWiki experience (including that of most Wikimedia
wikis) will have less clutter. This seems like a win to me.
