We don't have to act on this one, but I want to file to make a record of it. 

As discovered in bug 1081976, some AJAX-enabled UI actions require the write api to work as expected. 

Currently we restrict writeapi permission to users belonging to 'confirm' group, which means users not belonging to this group do not have the same experience as those who do when using certain features such as the watchlist. 

We should consider adding this permission to user or autoconfirmed groups.
In LocalSettings.php, please make these changes:

CURRENT
$wgGroupPermissions['user']['writeapi'] = false;

NEW
$wgGroupPermissions['user']['writeapi'] = true;

CURRENT
$wgGroupPermissions['autoconfirmed']['writeapi'] = false;

NEW
$wgGroupPermissions['autoconfirmed']['writeapi'] = true;
