Hi Gergő, I think that your proposal makes sense and would be good for the community to consider in an RfC. Because this could involve complex wikilegal changes to how Wikimedia sites assign user permissions, and presently unforseen side effects, I think that the RfC should be translated into a variety of languages before it us opened, and that it should remain open for one month. Thank you for requesting feedback early in the process of proposing this change, and for proceeding in a methodical and thoughtful way.

You can find the details and detailed rationale in the task: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T190015 To inform the editor communities, and to make sure we can accommodate their needs, I plan to run a community consultation; I'll probably kick it off on Friday and have it run for two weeks. You can find the draft here: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Tgr/Create_separate_user_group_for_editing_sitewide_CSS/JS I would appreciate if folks who are knowledgeable about the use of CSS/JS editing and user rights management in various parts of the community could look at it and add their concerns or suggestion to the talk page (or Phabricator if that's more appropriate). Suggestions for a better group name are especially welcome. (As I wrote it in the FAQ on the consultation page, I think making sure that MediaWiki is secure and at the same time empowers its users falls under the authority of the developer community, and so the normal code review process is appropriate for this change. Thus the consultation is not intended to be an RfC or other discussion/veto type process. If you disagree about the change in general, please discuss that on Phabricator, or the linked Gerrit patches.)
