> It could be something that users can override but not accidentally - for example, you could be normally limited to X edits per day (exact numbers t.b.d.) and then you could click a button in your user preferences that says "I have read the data import and mechanical edit guidelines and I want to lift the limitation for one week" or so.

I still don't have a clear picture what makes sense here. Checking the users table for some timestamp when rate limiting restrictions would be back to normal, isn't impossible to implement. Pretty much the same applies to the user registration date or number of changesets as additional decision criteria.
It's mostly a matter of how a meaningful policy could look like, and also this requires some consensus building in the community.
