Except for mediawikiwiki, where it's forced on for everyone, logged in or out, regardless of preference. :-)

mediawiki.org? I don't see it there.

Compare https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=MediaWiki_1.21&action=edit with https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki_1.21?veaction=edit in an isolated browser (e.g. Chrome Incognito).

Merged and will go out with wmf4.

I see - wan't looking at main namespace.
