--- Comment #5 from Mark Holmquist <mtrac...@member.fsf.org> ---
From a technical standpoint, by the way, this strikes me as intractably
complex.

Not only would you need to censor the page *as viewed*, you would need to
censor the page *as editable*, which means tearing out parts of the page in the
edit box. The user would be unable to edit those parts, and the parser would
have to stick them back in on the other end. Which, as the Parsoid project
proves, is very hard, if not impossible, in Wikitext.

On top of that, it may cause things to be impossible to style - if a censorship
block goes around an opening tag for one style thing or another, the parser may
still be able to display that style (again, it would be HARD), but the editor
wouldn't be able to change it without massively nasty hacks.
