Once this change is deployed to all WMF wikis, should these lines be removed from CommonSettings.php?

@Anomie yes, they can be removed then.

i didn't see we had these in common settings, but that's good, so my patch is less urgent and can go out in the train next week :) I needed the settings in my dev instance for stuff to work and makes sense that they are default in wikibase.
