Do not prevent unification if home wiki is blocked
Closed, ResolvedPublic

There is at least one legitimate user reported to stewards who cannot unify because of this.

Just to note that stewards very much support this change. It would more efficiently tackle abuses such as username vandalism.

Code is now merged and will go out in MW 1.21/wmf11.
