I don't know what a "valid user" is for wiki.d.o and I didn't find
that requirement in the HelpOnEditing or error messages.

Agreed. You seem to ignore "yet" in my above paragraph. Your
point here is not in conflict with mine.

If relicensing is "mount impossible" then I don't see the
value in bulk-migrating material, because it will need removal
at some point in the future. It looks like effort now just to
defer some bugfixing. Is there a firm plan to remove it ever,
or is the suggestion mainly a device to marginalise concerns
of Francesco Poli and others?
