so you have moin on a public ip, you want it readonly for the
internet, but internal people can make changes after they

with a different wiki, I did something similar by using the same
"data" with two different apache directives. the url "a" wiki was
readonly, the url "b" access to the same wiki had read/write but
required htaccess.

that worked, but it meant maintaining htaccess files. in moin you
could do the same with group acl :)

moderated registration would be nice, maybe just set the moin
mailserver to the university mx, hopefully it is not an open
relay. :)

could be problematic if somebody changes their email address
