By default these pages are already locked against editing except
with the admin password, so I don't think we need much more
discouragement than that. :-) In general I expect that only
wikiadmins will be editing the pages in the Site group.

Agreed -- I was working under heavy time pressures when I wrote
setprefs and its "documentation", so anything anyone cares to do to
improve it would be greatly appreciated. :-)
