JSPWiki is great, though I believe it's too easy to join and update. I am currently modifying my Wiki such that new users have to be validated before they get to modify the Wiki.

The only validation I can currently manage is me manually entering new users into either a NewEditors group (having "comment") or a TrustedEditors group (having "edit").

I plan to upgrade with work I did previously having seen it almost every where else, ie. forced to enter a valid email, and then reply to an automated email, then automatically getting into the NewEditors group (ie. "comment" only). Entering a garbled code would also help.

Sufficient accepted suitable comments then allow progression to the TrustedEditors group, this could also be automated.

Yes, this is by design. Wikis are designed to make participation as easy as possible, and I don't think we have to sacrifice that by demanding that everyone registers. But as an option, yes, something like this would be pretty cool.
