For me it seems as a "ticketing tool" language :)

I don't undestand. Do you mean that pages are blocked to no-sysop
members? It seems to have a sense because when a board (or preliminary
board) take a decision it's important to communicate this decision
(also with grammatical errors). If a no-board person makes a change
with unintentional misanderstandigs, the communication could be
different. What do you think if a person change your sandbox or
"correct" your discussion page changing the sense of your sentences?

There was a discussion same months ago and the most part of swiss
wikipedians seemed to accept that the seat of foundation was in a town
more central for all swiss people (like Zurich). It could be that this
resolution is connected with this discussion.
