I agree with bhousel (minus the unnecessary negativity towards the pace of development and the i-am-publicly-unfollowing-this-now-because-you-are-not-worthy-of-my-time antics): This is not something we should be adding to editors because every editor will implement their own concept of what users to trust with what level of edits, and script writers will just circumvent any such limitations anyway. It is something we should have on a basic API level, just as we limit the maximum number of changes in a changeset.

And with "it" I mean a basic rate limiting for changes uploaded at first, where users only make e.g. 10k edits a day. Or make that 100k, and later reduce the limit as we find the time to code exceptions like mentioned above, where e.g. a well planned import process can receive an override token or whatever.
