We are seeing an increase in rate limit lifting requests, which is great but also a pain to handle. As currently the default rate limit for non-authenticated users is really draconian (and arbitrary), we would like to have a 10x higher quota for all authenticated users. This will relieve the pressure on handling requests and also encourage both user registration and authenticated use of the API, which are both good things. According to past discussions (cc: @olasd) that should also not significantly impact the infra load (and even if it does, we want to do some real-world capacity testing and see when problems strikes, so this will be a good experiment too).
@anlambert: can we have 10x more rate limit quota by default for all authenticated users?
(of course it should still be possible to have a non-default quota for specific authenticated users, usually but not necessarily higher than the default one)
