Yes because that's a restriction for GS. Steward or global editinterface 
are what you need.

With the current policy there is no real need to wait but 
asking/notifying locally first is the right thing to do. :)

I suggest to file a bug for this. [[MediaWiki:Privacypage]] needs to be 
overwritten by the WikimediaMessages extension and/or all local messages 
cleaned up.
