I don't think it's really a community's decision to implement such a poor hack
like this.

With the current setup at there is an external
server dependency, an entirely separate user interface, a separate user auth
and permissions system, and the possibility for unwittingly leaked data like IP
addresses of users requesting accounts. This is undesirable and unacceptable.

I don't see a reason to limit this extension to the English Wikipedia and I
don't see any need for individual project consensus for something that's a
technical issue. Broadening the bug summary as well.
