However, being able to thank IP contributors for their contribution
would be FANTASTIC. Saying "thank you" to casual drive-by contributors
would give them quite a buzz, I'd think.

You already can, even on the unwelcoming ;) en.wiki and de.wiki: talk pages have not (yet) been killed. I think about 30-50k persons have been thanked with the simple {{grazie}} template on it.wiki across the years.

Perhaps a timeout? Say, you can thank an IP for their edit within 1
hour? We can experiment and see what time gives the best amount of
thanks versus mistakes.

On it.wiki, anonymous talk pages are purged monthly (with some conditions).
