@He7d3r, are you seeing this abused? We could add a hook in SpecialUserlogin so CentralAuth could update the memcache key to make it global, although that seems a little extreme.
You could also make a global abuse filter rule to block accountcreate actions after a throttle is reached. That will at least limit the number of wikis that can be abused.

[17:55:59] <Nemo_bis> The last time, I just told the first row of people to register on Wikipedia, the second in Wikiquote, and so on.
