For a normal user, no: only wiki admins can delete pages. In fact on mwiki
you cannot get rid of those pages at all because if you try to move them to
a new location, a redirect remains on the old address. On the last few
weeks we "cleaned" the ES mwiki by changing on all the non useful pages the
category from ES to OldES, being sure that nothing linked to those pages
and then restarted almost from scratch with new content on a new folder
structure. IMO, this is the best we can do: if at least the address is
still useful change the content, if not even the address is useful make
sure that nothing link to that page and remove any meaningful category from
it to avoid users arriving by accident.
