Frankly, folks who want to grief juicy targets will create one or more
throwaway accounts, wait out the waiting period, and then let the
activities commence. Disabling not-logged-in edits won't do much to
change that.

Small one-off changes really aren't all that important in the grand
scheme of things. However, the impact of all of those small changes is
often pretty large. The vast majority of the edits I've made to wikis on
The Web have been when not-logged-in. If I had been required to log in,
I would not have performed those edits. But, perhaps I'm atypical.
