I just discussed this with @Jdforrester-WMF. This will remain tabled until the English Wikipedia switches to an default-VE configuration for anons (or until we decide to go do it on another wiki like Spanish Wikipedia) and until we complete T104479: Provide a modern wikitext editor .

So the planning covered by this task may not be needed until 2017.
