I expect this will be fully considered by the systems team.
Note that some of the access control on the current W3C
wikis is done in conjunction with the overall W3C site ACL system.

Can you demonstrate examples of this working already in
other MediaWiki instances?  If MediaWiki supports this more
easily than moinmoin then that's a strong argument (for us)
in favor of the migration.

I don't think we know yet in the specific case but there's clear
interest in -- and time allocated to -- simplifying this in the future.
