There is high demand for reattributing edits. (See [[Wikipedia:Changing attribution for an edit]].) However, developers are always busy and not available to fulfill the requests, so, please grant stewards the ability to re attribute edits on all wikis. I believe that a new extension should be created and a new log (can be called "Reattribution log") were reattribution of edits is recorded (something like "Re attributed $1 edits to $2", example: "Reattributed 6 edits to User:Example@enwiki"). Stewards then can checkuser the user to be sure that the user uses the IP that he wants to reattribute its edits. Since stewards don't speak all wikipedia languages, requests could be revised first by local admins (to ensure that the request is valid and not just vandalism).
Changing product/component; requires an extension that can do this.
