Reopening this. This feature really needs some documentation. And a ReadOnlyAccess seems equally as valuable.

One thing, this only impacts actions which verify access. There are some plugins that permit anonymous updates, and these will sneak by. This feature doesn't actually make the Wiki admin-only, it only blocks the haveAccess() test for non-admins.

I think we also need to verify the impact on registration.
