If you only want verified users to do stuff, do this:

create a page EditorGroup and put a first level list on it having the 
user names you allow to edit.

use acl_rights_default = u"EditorGroup:read,write,delete,revert All:read"

this way it doesn't matter at all whether somebody creates a user 
account or not (there are some comfort features, also for just reading 
the wiki bound to having a user account, so you should not disallow 
creating user profiles) as far as edit access is concerned.

btw, this all is documented on HelpOnAccessControlLists page.
