Noting in passing, in doing T185948 we touched a lot of different code points in MediaWiki core that provide a "user comments on action" field, and there's quite a lot of poor uniformity:

  • Use OOUI, with counter
    • The edit form in core (and thus the 2003/2006/2010 wikitext editors; CodeEditor; …)
    • VisualEditor and the 2017 wikitext editor
    • Page moving (Special:MovePage)
  • Use OOUI, but lack a counter
    • Page deletion (action=delete) and undeletion (Special:Undelete)
    • User blocking (Special:Block)
  • Don't use OOUI
    • Revision deletion (Special:RevisionDelete)
    • Revision tag editing
    • File deletion
    • Page protection/unprotection (action=protect)
    • User rights change (Special:UserRights)

It'd be nice to not just use OOUI consistently, but have the same input widget in some ways for all of these, I think (albeit with different lengths, perhaps).
