@Aklapper Why did you remove Community-consensus-needed without providing the link?

@Danny_B: I added the point community consensus to the task description

Why this feature needed a community consensus, while some other beta features with similar or larger impact didn't? For example, Content Translation and Cross-wiki Notifications didn't need a consensus, although Content Translation did even affect users who didn't activate it because of some articles that were translated very poor by foreign users.
