I agree. It's a bedrock principle of MediaWiki and Wikimedia that local
administrators are trusted users. "Superprotection" was hastily
implemented on a spurious premise and it has no legitimate use-cases. It
was never appropriate to deploy to Wikimedia wikis and it should be
removed. And nobody should be in the business of trying to retroactively
justify this misfeature's existence, in my opinion.
