Of the 120 staffers that don't have a "staff account", how many have
accounts with (WMF) in the username - or accounts at all? I'd think that
unless employees had a predictable reason for editing qua staff, they
wouldn't need the (WMF) indicator or a staff flag, right? In any case, a
little off track with the initial proposal, which sounds like it doesn't
have a ton of support.
