If the site is small enough like ( wikivesrity) and you have consensus, you can globally enable the gadget in the same way other gadgets have been globally enabled on commons ( imageAnnotator etc ). Would be interesting in early adopters to get wider testing and feedback on the component.

To do this simply copy the contents of to your MediaWiki:Common.js file
