Easy reproduction steps:
I guess few people do what I do. (and not everyone reports issues) Though I have done this before, and probably made mass null edits before without issue. But, probably. Maybe I didn't. Can't say for sure.

191 files selected in VFC. With 40 remaining (191-40=151) I got throttled. 120 actual edits were made.
I tried it again, selected 500 files (same stuff, just null edits) and with 467 files remaining I got throttled.
Thu, Feb 13
I did almost nothing (2 edits) for 19 minutes. Started VFC again for some forgotten edits. 5 edits and BOOM, throttled. 3 more and BOOM, throttled.

Dunno who fixed it, but thanks!

I know ratelimits are applied to stuff like page previews. Can't you also apply a ratelimit (say, 6 per minute per IP? is that enough to stop things from breaking?) to these 5000-queries?

"WORKSFORME" (oh, wrong bug tracking system..)

Thank you. For this case, I think everything is fine now. I was just surprised to see how discussions about virtually the same subject took place without them being connected. It would perhaps have been more efficient if there had been a link. (T27707 contained plenty of relevant information)
Per Dalba, it shouldn't be a problem to mark the undone edit as patrolled. It's either undone and can be patrolled, or it was right and can be patrolled. Only the reversion may need patrolling. (if the reverting user isn't autopatrolled) Also, marking undone edits could (if desired) be restricted to certain user groups. (in that case I would restrict it to autopatrollers I think)
CKoerner, Aklapper, thanks. I still see room for improvement, perhaps something like a separate section in the newsletter for stuff that can still be commented on and hasn't been decided yet.

I used this on a regular basis on Commons. The tools to search contributions are frequently inadequate for my purposes (as in: ctrl+f is way better) and/or I want some statistics combined with the number of contributions on Commons being huge compared to Wikipedia. If FlickreviewR messed up 2000 files, I need a damn list. I can see this making little sense on other wikis though.
@tstarling @Krinkle thanks to the both of you! What surprises me is that it seems the discussion on Commons at the beginning of this year (which was quite heated) and the resolving of T27707 as a result only a few months before this task was created happened, seemingly, completely independent from each other. Also, I'm surprised to see it actually is possible to drop support for dead browsers. We were lead to believe it was impossible.. Also see comments like the one from @revi : "I'm sure WMF will reject this. Don't waste your time. Bye."

It's hard to say when the right time is, but waiting for more widespread support is a good idea. Imagine we start transcoding now and when hardware implementations finally come around, nothing plays because their implementation is quirky.

I'd think there isn't much of a use case for pages you do want to get page link notices for but do not want on your watchlist.

@Bawolff What would it take to move this forward?

I haven't read all this, but could this Commons report be related?

With 4K video becoming more and more commonplace, 4GB isn't always enough. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Politparade.webm and https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Genderwahn.webm are encoded to fit within MediaWiki's limit, which isn't a good sign. And 9 Mbps for 4K.. Well.. Could be worse, but.. not ideal. And they lack 1440p and 2160p transcodes, presumably due to the file size limit.
