This is something that obviously must be fixed before VE is enabled by default, which is planned for Real Soon Now(tm).

This is something that obviously must be fixed before VE is enabled by
default, which is planned for Real Soon Now(tm).

By default for whom on which wiki? It's been enabled by default on enwiki since 1 July for logged-in users and since 15 July for anonymous users too.

The resolution of Bug 51160 gives me hope. French Wikipedia transcludes Talk:.../Suppression subpages for some deleted articles.
