On es.wikipedia we have completed migrating our images to Commons. Thus Image namespaces don't have now utility and are only edited by vandals, so they should be made only editable by sysops.
$wgNamespaceProtection[ NS_IMAGE ] = array( 'editinterface' );
$wgNamespaceProtection[ NS_IMAGE_TALK ] = array( 'editinterface' );
Or in a SiteConfiguration format:
'wgNamespaceProtection' => array(
'default' = array(NS_MEDIAWIKI => array( 'editinterface' )),
'eswiki' = array(NS_MEDIAWIKI => array( 'editinterface' ), NS_IMAGE => array( 'editinterface' ), NS_IMAGE_TALK => array( 'editinterface' ) )
PS: Once vandal editing is blocked, updating the Statistics would be nice. Now we have -1,396 files uploaded ;-)
It's not the case that they're useless; local information can be written there to supplement the commons data.
No, the descriptions shall be on commons.
For the strange cases where we really need a local information not for other projects, sysops can set it.
The doubt can be if only sysops can edit it or also autoconfirmed but people seem inclined to sysops-only.
