Well, of course it doesn't help against wiki spam, but the "do not
edit" time will be minimised.
In a way, it's comparable to greylisting in the e-mail domain. You
make the client tell repeatedly that its request is still valid.
Fewest spiders or spambots will respond to that.

Where to publish this proposal?
