Restrict the ability of users to choose enwiki Draft: namespace for Wikidata interwiki links
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

With wikidata interwikilinks it is possible to add enWP's Draft: namespace. Pages in that namespace are not considered articles and should not be available to be chosen. Where a page at enWP is moved from the main ns to the Draft: ns at Wikidata it should be treated with the same methodology as the link removal process.

From Lydia:

I believe we can restrict links to specific namespaces in the config. I think that would be better than an abuse filter for performance reasons. Anyone up for creating a ticket?

It might be useful to replace the existing abuse filters for user pages, template subpages and files as well with limits via config if that's good for performance reasons.

Other Wikipedias too, I think.
